Manta Rays

At night a light was focused on the water to attract the small organisms that manta rays find tasty, and sometimes two or three manta rays would come in for a feast.  It was a treat to watch these graceful creatures circle, and circle again, with their really weird mouths set to capture their meal.  They came in close enough to touch, and that brought about the necessity for the sign:

Imagine having to put up a sign asking people not to throw rocks at the rays!

The rocks in the foreground are out of the water.  These guys came in close!  The white is the underside of the flipper turned up.

Here’s a short video of one manta having his dinner..
