Glaucus Maximus - Andrew McPherson

I found this peculiar creature while walking along the edge of the beach near a rock pool. It was washed up on the sand. After photographing it with a Canon digital SLR with macro lens, I put it into the rock pool.

I found these today on Tathra Beach, Far South Coast NSW!. My friend and I caught them in a sandcastle pool. Tomorrow morning we are going try and take some photos of them with Mum's camera. Thanks for helping us name them. Glaucus maximus, sounds like someone from Star Wars.

I have recently found these, "glaucus or sea lizards in large numbers on the beach at tygarah, north of Byron bay, where is their usual habitat.
