The story: Divers on the north-western coast of Norway sometimes find really huge angler fish. This odd looking, well camouflaged ocean floor dweller has an enormous mouth - planning to ambush and eat anything that comes along, attracting its prey with a "lure", which is connected to a fishing rod-like thing on top of its head. This cold water fish can get seriously large - 2 meters long and over 100 kilograms...!

Location:  Ørsta, in the North-west of Norway, in the local fjord at 25 meters depth

Camera: Nikon D300, Nexus housing, 2x Ikelite DS160 Substrobes

Settings:  f6.3, 1/100, ISO 400
