Caption: Scorpionfish fluorescing at night. Close-up of a tasseled scorpionfish (Scorpaenopsis oxycephalus), an ambush predator of small fish. It uses the suction created as it opens its huge mouth to capture its prey. It has been photographed under blue light at night, resulting in the fluorescence seen here. Photographed in Lembeh Strait, off Sulawesi, Indonesia.
