    Spent more quality time with Jaws today. 5 days since our last encounter and the eggs have clearly developed with more distinctive eyes and shapes within. They also seem to have grown in size as the Dusky Jawfish's mouth seemed more stuffed than before. Today we also witnessed multiple aerating of the eggs...this happened in a split second and is very hard to capture on camera!

    What can I say? This is just so cool. I wish the eggs were just a touch sharper, but really the closeup of this fish with it's green eyes peaking out and then to see all of the little eyes in it's mouth! It's an excellent frame, but more importantly it teaches us about these amazing creatures and they're life cycle.
