Flying Rays

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Amy Dengler

While taking pictures of the sunrise in Cabo San Lucas, I heard a continuous slapping sound so I went down to the water to see what it was - to my surprise, there were hundreds of Manta Rays jumping out of the water & making the slapping sound as the dropped back in. There were schools of them jumping all over the water, I couldn't come close to capturing the scene but I managed to get these 2 jumping together.

Location: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
