Hl Female With Eggs 6 21 2016 B

Female blue-rings that are brooding rapidly senesce losing skin color and texture. They will die a few days after their eggs hatch. I the case of this female death is two weeks away. However, when threatened they can still put on quite a show as seen in the next image.
The symmetry of the ring pattern really pops out at you with the octopus position and light skin.
