These two nudibranchs, Facelina auriculata, were collected from the side of a fish quay pontoon in St. Peter Port harbour, Guernsey. They were placed in an aquarium for photography. As they met they embraced each other and stayed together for about a minute or so before moving off in separate directions. They were returned to St. Peter Port harbour after photography.
