Santa Barbara Janolus
Ranging from San Francisco Bay south to the Gulf of California, this beautiful nudibranch was found in the eelgrass off La Jolla, California during a night dive.
For lots of great photos and information on nudibranchs, check out Mike Miller's Slug Site.
(This photo was cleaned-up using Adobe Photoshop to remove quite a bit of backscatter which was inevitable due to the heavy surge and the proximity to lots of sand.)
