The Story: Peacock mantis shrimp are very common in Philippino waters. We were lucky to find this beautiful model with eggs. It was really hard to take this shot because she was really shy at first. I had spent all my air waiting and making her comfortable with my equipment. When she came outside her hole, I was ready to catch the moment.

Equipment Used: Nikon D810 Camera, Nikkor 105mm Macro Lens, Sea & Sea YS-D1, Retra LSD Snoot
