Snails & Slugs (2)

Elysia Picta

Painted Elysia
wavy banded sacoglossa
a slug to behold
a rare rainbow ruffler of colours

Her Y-shaped head
crowned like a princess
with blue
-tipped rhinophores

Is completely at home
on the sand
of the shallow patch reefs
or on the patch reefs' rubble

Where her long rhino
-phores are rarely at rest
as they hunt for the algae
she seeks
