Watch and listen to National Geographic photographer David Doubilet introduce the Nudibranch here. I promise it will knock your socks off!
“Of all the creatures in the sea, these are the high fashion models.”
“Nudibranchs have a marvelous sex life. They are hermaphrodites.”
Doubilet built a seamless studio to photograph these Nudibranchs. There’s nothing like a soft, seagoing slug!

Amazing. Though I’m glad my name isn’t Flabellina.
