Octopus Guarding Eggs

I’ve been on the lookout for this for a while now since we have seen some Common Octopus mating when I first got here, and there are plenty of them that appear to be guarding burrows like I would expect them to do when guarding eggs. This one is in a rather difficult location to photograph, but I managed a couple shots. If you look closely, you can see eye spots on those eggs, so I am hoping to get incredibly lucky and be there when they’re hatching! Stay tuned!
