LPSO Female 15 B Eggs In Shell 1 4 2016 C Crop

Female Larger Pacific Striped Octpus are interoparous laying eggs over several months. Eggs are attached to the walls of the den - usually a shell. Females care for their eggs, but unlike most octopuses continue to hunt and mate while brooding. Eggs are small, about 3 mm - the size of mom's eye!
I am still waiting for you to act on @mucktopus ' idea of a coffee table book!
 
I absolutely love this shot. Of all the many amazing pics Roy has taken, this is among my favorites
