The story:  Jawfish with eggs had been on my wish list for a while. Before this shot, I had always failed in my approach whenever I found a jawfish (with or without eggs). This particular dive, the guide excitedly signalled me to follow him. It took me a while before I spotted what he was trying to show me - jawfish with eggs. What was unusual was that the eggs were orange in color! With some patience and guidance from the guide, I was finally successful in approaching the jawfish. After some frontal shots, I noticed that more eggs were spilling out on the top left side. So I decided to shift more to the left and lowered the angle even more, as low as I could. I'm happy to see that it helped to showcase the mouthful of eggs even more.
