Coral spawning is very mysterious and beautiful. In Japan, coral spawns around May and June every year, but it is not an easy thing to see. This is because corals are natural creatures and you never know when they will spawn. I tried to do it last year and the year before, but I couldn't see it. This year, after many days of going to the ocean, I was finally able to see the sight. The corals release their pink bundles all at once at a certain time. When the release peaks, the whole area turns pink, but it only lasts for a few minutes. I was able to capture this miraculous moment in my photos.
