Janolus barbarensis from Southern California

Hi Doc,  

We were out photographing branchs and other great marine life all weekend, out at our local Southern California Islands.  Check out the jewel of the California branchs, Janolus barbarensis, with its gold and sapphire tipped cerata, what an incredible animal.  These are two animals I photographed in about 90 feet of water at a place called Farnsworth Banks.  Farnsworth was loaded with Janolus as well as six other species we photographed.

Have a great week and let me know if there is anything else we can do for you,
Bruce Wight.

Dear Bruce,
It is indeed a beautiful species.
