7th Place Marine Life Behavior

Mei Hing Sin

"Hawaiian Lei"



The Story: After I finished a safety stop on a sandy bottom 5 meters underwater, I spotted a tiny red spot. I discovered they were red eggs with a tiny mantis shrimp.  I immediately put on my close up diopter and spotted that the mantis shrimp was putting its head through the eggs.  I had never seen this amazing moment before.  I don't know whether the eggs belong to it or not.  I tried asking people and have not had a solid answer till now.
