"Dad and her Eggs"

Walter won his choice of SubSee +5 or +10 diopter and flip adapter from ReefNet!


The story:  In my dive I saw the whole sequence of mating between male and female, like a dance in the blue, so much emotion. When you split a portion of eggs is left out of the belly of the male, the situation is very rare and unique. This picture was taken while the horse tries to retrieve the eggs.Fortunately he recovered completely. I thought it was a very unusual situation and I asked about a biologist friend told me that it could happen, but does not know the ragioni.Ho thought was the right photo for the category behavior, never seen photos of the moment. The main difficulty for me was not to bother the horse in order not to lose the eggs
