The eyes look like cherries. My first thought was they look like old-fashioned headlights.

I've made a screen saver from several of your nudibranch pix, with a couple of nebula shots from 4Legsgood. Nudibranch and nebula fit well together, both have enchanting color combinations.
Thank you for beautiful critters I'd never heard of before. The internets are fun to play with.

These are as interesting as any exotic beastie from the Cambrian Explosion with the added bonus of all the colors of a Dairy Queen banana split.
