I caught this in the Gulf of Mexico at Pensacola, Florida about a year ago and took these pics before I released it. He was just swimming along maybe six feet from the shore. I think it is related to cephalopods, but I figured you guys would know what it is even if it isn't. Personally, I am inclined to think it is a sea angel, but, hey, that is for the professionals to decide. Haha. Thanks!

I really appreciate all of your opinions. The curiosity of what it is has always annoyed me, and I'm glad to finally have a real name for it instead of just an amatuer guess.
