Description

This clown doris was practicing it's acrobatic skills using a piece of seaweed as the rope.

While I was watching the show and taking photos a cray swam by giving me a slap with it's tail.

I had to make a decision to try and find the cray lurking in the seaweed, knowing those nippers would be out, or carry on watching the show. As it was not lunchtime, I carried on watching the arial acrobatics of the clown doris :)

Second time I have seen a clown doris and a cray - I wonder if that is a coincidence or if they like hanging out together *LOL*

Show was performed in the shallow subtidal zone on a rock face shaded by seaweeds.

Description

This is my find of the day and what makes it even more exciting for me is that all other observations for this have been recorded in the Poor Knights - just goes to show how amazing my little corner of the world is!

This little nudibranch, no more than 30mm long, was making its way up a reef face.

Living in the sub tidal zone of the lagoon.
