Photo of the Month: Diaulula sandiegensis, San Diego dorid laying eggs

I haven’t been blogging as much as I would like to so decided this will be a good way to blog and share my pictures at the same time.

Dive Site: Coral Garden, Anacapa Island, California

This was the last dive of 2 day trip on Peace Dive boat chartered by Bluewater Photo for the 2014 Socal Shootout. I have done this dive couple of years ago as part of 2012 shootout so I remember it well since its easy to navigate.

Its more like a wall dive with lot of Gorgonians and Sea fans to see in the 70-90 ft range and last time I found a few Tritonia festivas so I was using my Canon 100mm lens.

Couple of minutes into the dive, I came across this beautiful dorid laying eggs and figured it would be perfect for a behavior shot. It won 1st Prize in Behavior Category.
