A photographer needed a keen eye to snap photos of heavily camouflaged weever fish hiding beneath the sandy seabed. Maurizio Pasi took a dive 20 metres below the surface to observe the venomous greater weever fish, which lurks beneath the sand in shallow waters waiting for prey that it can attack.

Dr Pasi, who is a scientist in the field of medicinal chemistry, photographed the fish while scuba diving along a 500-metre stretch of coastline in Savona, Italy.
