Taken at a perfect angle with accurate focus and depth of field, the outcome is a lovely shot.
The development of SQUID is visible in the picture. These eggs are about 3mm in diameter and when the little squid inside has used up all the nutrients in that "egg-ball" he is attached to, the see-through shell of the egg breaks open.

Very impressive super macro, amazing to see the see-through egg.
