Nudibranches in Andaman sea...

Nudibranches Underwater Similan
Nudibranches Underwater Similan 
I am taking you one more time underwater, as I have to show still few wet beauties:-)) In the underwater kingdom of Similan Islands one may encounter several smaller and bigger nudibranches these colourful (and sometimes so tiny to spot) creatures are fascinating for photographing due to the different shapes, lines and unexpected flashy colours. The flashiness actually indicates that they contains poison, in case some of the other water inhabitants may think of eating them. So the colours is their own protection!

The picture with one of my finger is to help you realise the real size...and in order to show you how funny we look when taking picture of small fellows (invisible to the rest) is the pictures of Nico+myself taken by Tim, a fellow diver and uw-photographer:-)

Now I understand why the Similan island is so popular for snorkeling and diving.

What odd looking creatures! I can't figure out if they have eyes and mouth. :) Without your hand, we could not tell the size of them.
