Bits of Flesh

You are looking at the mug of a goosefish, one of the many species of anglerfish. There is something so disturbing about an animal that lures its prey in close by dangling bits of its own flesh in front if its gaping maw. Thankfully, this fish is near invisible when it is lying flat and in wait. That invisibility is a blessing, given its ugliness. Hey, we count our blessings where we can.
