That Opalescent nudi was almost albino - except for some midline color. Very unusual! I've seen them in many different color patterns, but not without color! Great find. Did you post that on one of the nudi forums? Curious to see if any others have seen one like that.
Wow, that Buffalo Sculpin sure does look dead! Did it move while you were taking pics? My understanding, although I've never seen it, is that they will stick out their cheek spines when they're caught and pulled out of the water. And I agree with the others - the dude should be in a trauma center. Probably managed to escape a ling cod recently. May need to go to counseling for PTLD if he manages to stay alive. (post traumatic ling disorder).
Also, my understanding too, is that Sculpins are not toxic, although they sure look like they should be.
Divers sure are seeing a lot of worms lately! Really great shots on the Nemertean worm with the surface of the water above it. - Janna
