Thank you very much for your kind words, I am glad that Whidbey Critters still matter to
some of local divers, for it is harder and harder to come up with pages with photos that
don't bring up a sigh "or no, not another Lingcod picture !" kind of response...
I am happy to add yet another new to me critter - Speckled Compound Ascidian. At first
I thought it is a sponge (they are really hard to ID), but I got help from Gretchen Lambert
who helped me to correctly identify this. And she should know. She described it for the
first time few years ago and named it after her grandson ! How cool is that.
I hope to meet you, critter enthusiasts, at the Tacoma Expo, I will be again helping out at the
Whidbey Island Dive Center booth...
