Hi folks,

a short movie about the weirdest and rare seen Melibe colemani.
Shot in South Komodo, last November.

In one scene there are two Melibe and in the background their layed eggs.

Epic stuff, a great example of how video can really shine. I don't know if it would be possible to make a great photograph of that guy. (Would be fun to try though)

Thanks Alex!

I agree with Steve that a still photo would be hard pressed to show this unusual nudibranch as well as this video does. Nice work.
