    A stargazer usually burrows itself on the sand showing only part of the face waiting for a fish to swim by to be ambushed. This was taken during a night dive in Anilao, Batangas, Philippines.

    This photograph creates an ominous feeling of a fish at night waiting to attack, which seems to have been the photographer's intent. The lighting and printing work well in b&w to intensify the effect.
