Description

Here is a collection of Nudibranchs that we spotted in just two dives around Phi Phi Le. I don’t dive with a macro lens, just a Canon G16 which is a great all-rounder including for video, so believe me, I wasn’t even looking for them. It was only after I got back that I realised how many we’d seen.

Not sure what the collective noun for nudis is – an aggregation?
