This is a rare shot of what is called a "Veil of Eggs" that was laid by a Goosefish at the New England Aquarium in Boston, MA. The veil is 56 feet in length, weighs approximately 25 pounds and is estimated to contain more than 1 million eggs. This image was awarded the Image of the Week by the National Association of Photoshop Professionals on 5/21/2010. http://brogen.smugmug.com/photos/874300902_mZwK5-L.jpg
