Manta and rays

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Claudio Contreras

Floating at the surface of the sea, unable to see the bottom I felt observed, I was searching for a whale and its calf that had been spotted around before, suddenly out of nowhere a curious manta passed right underneath me. The presence of the manta, the glorious entrance of the sunrays and the melodious chant of the whale made this a very special moment.

Location: San Benedicto Island, Socorro Islands Biosphere Reserve, Mexico.
