Nudibranches - Livingcolours


Nudibranches are one of our favourite underwater models. There are so many variations terms for forms and colours. Although we have collected quite a number of different nudis, we are always on a hunt for new ones and get really exited if we get to picuture a specis we haven´t seen before.

There are more than 3´000 described specis so still a way to go for us. A nudibranch is a member of Nudibranchia, a group of soft-bodied, marine gastropod mollusks which shed their shell after their larval stage. They are noted for their often extraordinary colors and striking forms. Helmut Debelius calls them butterflies of the oceans  and one couldn´t find a better expression for hese amazing animals.
