Caption: Window-pane flounder. Camouflaged window-pane flounder (Scophthalmus aquosus) on a sandy seabed. This flatfish can change its colour to match its surroundings, making it difficult for predators to find it. It feeds mainly on smaller fish and crustaceans. Photographed in the Gulf of Maine, USA.
