This nudibranch was laying her ribbon of eggs
They don't guard their eggs, @Lauren.There's thousands of eggs, many will not hatch/survives as they get feed on by other animals including other nudibranch.
So beautiful, I had no idea they laid their eggs in ribbons. Do they then guard them?
Thanks, Ashley :)Actually, the eggs of another specie of Nudibranch called Spanish Dancer (Hexabranchus sanguineus) is red in color and they can looks like 'roses' :)
Beautiful photo, Albert! The eggs make it look like it's sitting on a flower :)
Thanks, @Reza :)
Thanks, @Maria & @Sachindra :)

It is so nice to see it next to its eggs ribbon :-)
"Butterfly of the sea" . . . What a great description!
