The alien world of the deep sea has some very odd inhabitants.

Photographer Wayne MacWilliams dove 150 meters (500 feet) into the waters off the coast of Singer Island in Palm Beach, Florida, to capture a particularly fascinating moment from the deep sea’s black abyss.

The images show a translucent sea creature, possibly a species of comb jelly, with a shimmering fish in its belly that it had eaten just moments before.
