Manta Ray Manta female

Magic moments with a manta ray feb 28 2012. This Manta ray was very friendly and clearly enjoyed close interactions with us divers. She made repeated passes over and next to us for over 15 minutes.

This female Manta Ray was so friendly that its tail actually passed over my shoulder, cms away. She was totally unafraid.
