I took these photos of a pair of Tambja verconis mating at Halifax Park in Port Stephens on 13/12/03 [New South Wales, Australia] at approximately 18m on a small ledge.
I hope they are of interest to you.

Photos of animals 'doing things' such as mating, egg-laying, and feeding, are always of interest. Your photos again emphasise the dependence of many of the animals on their food. The bushy plant-like blue object at the top left of your photo is a colony of its bryozoan food, Bugula dentata. There is also a bit of Bugula at the top right of the photo, which looks as though it has already been eaten by Tambja.
