Flashy



Hopkins' Rose nudibranch (Okenia rosacea) on 28 October 2015

I first saw this species in the Bodega Bay area last January (see post from 3 January 2015).  I'm not sure exactly how many are around now, but it was nice to see one tonight.


Then Eric was watching the sunset and predicted a green flash.  Sure enough, the sun sank quickly below the waves at ~6:15 p.m. and a small green flash appeared at the horizon.  Can you find it in the picture below?


 The green flash is barely visible above the waves in the center.

 'Tis the start of the season to watch for green flashes on clear nights!
