My first sea slug

My first sea slug: Ringed nudibranch
Last month I saw this nudibranch on Bainbridge Island’s Rockaway Beach: the low tides are returning during daylight hours. One of my goals for 2008 beachcombing was to find my first wild sea slug. Later I was told by a nudibranch expert I know that this creature is usually found subtidal. The sea slug captured the afternoon sunlight with its translucent body, appearing almost ethereal. When I returned two days later, it looked as if the creature had been eaten, leaving behind only white rings of flesh on rock.
