Friday Nudibranch Blogging


This is Ceratosoma gracillimum, who, abandoning herself openly and avowedly to the pursuits of pleasure and power, has brilliantly fulfilled every aspiration which the heart of an ambitious woman without principle can entertain. She never forgets herself - never deals in sentiment nor hypocrisy - and always avows frankly her business and her objects.

Lest it be objected that I am insufficiently prodigal with those laborious terms of opprobrium which polite society deems appropriate to my subject, let me say merely that I write neither to palliate nor condemn, but to describe.

So... you're saying she's a scarlet nudi?

Gorgeous. Lovely to behold.

The little dots look make her look like a constellation

She looks like Santa's sled somewhere up in the Artic drifts, and sounds not unlike Smarte's cat Geoffrey. And after such a dark week, I'm so glad to get to Nudibranches.

Actually since it's Autumn round here, soon all our branches will be nudey. We'll all be looking at de Nudi Branches then.

I think she looks like a tomato that someone stepped on, but didn't quite crush completely into the pavement. Oh, those white spots? Those are pigeon poop.

Hrm. She's actually pretty, but my description doesn't make her sound like it. I think I must be in a bad mood or something: time to drink profusely!
