How do you catch dinner if you’re a slow-moving sea slug? You go after something that’s even slower! In this not-so-speedy skirmish, watch as a California sea slug captures a shaggy sea slug. Thanks to staffer Patrick Webster for the great video!

Our own Patrick Webster, Guest Experience Program Specialist, just won the Youth in Yosemite Short Film Contest, celebrating art, nature and a personal connection to Yosemite. Plenty of ocean imagery to enjoy, too! 

Congrats Patrick!
