Hypselodoris bennetti mating

Dear Bill,
We were suprised at how few photos of Hypselodoris bennetti there were on the Forum. I guess because they are so common locally that people tend to ignore them. Here are some photos of them mating to add to the collection.

This one was taken at Fly Point Marine Reserve, Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia. They would have been taken on the high tide. Other details weren't recorded.
Yours sincerely,
Leanne & David Atkinson
