Holy smokes — that is outstanding. What a shot!
Can you safely swim in that?
LOL. You could probably walk on that.
See what happens when sharks are depleted? Rays abound!
Hi Craig – The photographer is Sandra Critelli and the location is Isla Holbox, Mexico (west of Cancun). The guy at Pixdaus took it from here http://www.pbase.com/worldphotos/image/83276656
That woudl be a sight I would not forget. Majestic.
Cow nosed ?
I’m probably being a little too nit-picky, but those look like cownose rays to me. No matter…this is an absolutely amazing picture!
NUKE IT FROM ORBIT! IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO BE SURE!!!
Aah, we saw this a couple of times when I was younger, though we were on shore and what we could see wasn’t quite as impressive as that (they tended to come past in smallish bunches) – once in Tampa, when the friends we’d gone down with freaked and high-tailed it for the sand when something ‘big’ brushed up against a leg, and once in Sanibel/Captiva. The latter time, a family a bit down the beach had caught a small one for the children to have a look at (I believe they let it go afterwards), and on the way over, I caught sight of two dolphins porposing not far away. Missed getting a close-up look at the ray for watching those until they left, but it was worth it.
That was a good vacation.
Wow.. I wish i wuz there. 😀
Awesome, Thank you
