In early April I went for a walk during the low tide in Baleal (Portugal) and found dozens of Aplysia punctata, some mating, and two fairly large Aplysia fasciata in the small pools in the rock. A few days later I returned with my camera and although I didn't find any A. fasciata, I found a nice A. depilans.
The photos were taken in rock pools during the low tide, no more than 50cm deep. The A. depilans was about 15cm long. I have sent the photos of Aplysia punctata separately.
Hope you like them!
All the best,

Thanks for thinking about us. Although Sea Hares are common, their relatively large size and shallow water habitat make them a nuisance for most photographers of nudibranchs. So good photos of them are always welcome.
