Beaded nudibranch

Me and Maria has been searching for nudibranch during our rockpool walk recently, finally Maria found one! We were super excited, more than when we find it while we freedive, because it's in shallow water and we can take macro photo without having to duck dive and try to get a good shot in one breath hold!

This Beaded Nudibranch (Hoplodoris Nodulosa) covered in bead-like bumps was seen on the rocky side near Little Bay among seagrasses and seaweeds. About 4-5cm long. It was sliding on the seaweed when we saw it. The rhinophores and gills were flapping as it moves under the current of the water, so cute!
An interesting capture, never heard of these before
