Peacock mantis shrimp, no eggs - pity!  Unusually not running for cover but quite chilled in front of the camera.

Shots taken of a subject between 3 inches and 1 foot (7.5 to 30cm) in size (e.g. large fish or diver head) that dominates the frame - any background is incidental and occupies LESS THAN 50% of frame
This female cuttle fish, although initially cautious, after a couple of minutes ignored us and continued placing her eggs deep in the coral. Over the next few days she filled the coral with her eggs. Sadly this will be her final act.
