Eerie beauty of the squid: Underwater photographs which capture spectacular colours of sea creature usually thought of as ugly

Stunning: A picture of a bobtail squid taken by Todd Bretl, a specialist underwater photographer

Transformation: The photographer has captured the thousands of pigment cells squids have on their skin arms called chromatophores, which cause them to change colour

White: The small sucker arms are curled up beneath the body of the squid

Colour: These squids' cells appear as small patches or dots causing the formation of yellow or brownish-black pigments
