Comments : There was a giant cabezon guarding this nest of (obviously) Cabezon eggs, but I managed to snap a couple frames before he showed up to chase me off. Beautiful eggs, with a little shrimp to set of the purple of the eggs. Those shrimp are less than half an inch long. This is at the extreme close end of my macro lens.
