Glowing deep sea creatures

This incredible collection of pictures taken by Joshua Lambus, in Hawaii reveals the colourful creatures that are just a few centimetres in size. They are found in water more than 7,000ft deep, off the coast of Kailua-Kona. Among the ‘colour x-ray’ style images are pictures of rare squids, jellyfish and shrimp.

Joshua Lambus said: “The colours they produce are the naturally reflected colours of their pigmentation.” Joshua became a minor celebrity after he photographed a tiny octopus, called a tremoctopus – only the second time the animal had been captured on camera. Joshua Lambus has now been on more than 400 ‘blackwater’ dives.
