Pictured soaring high above the water, you might think these winged wonders are a rare type of bird but they are actually flying mobula rays.

Seen bursting out of the water with their wings outstretched, the incredible series of pictures manages to capture the sprightly sea creatures mid-flight.

Wow. Those guys really get some air. I find the huge school of them somewhat creepy... alien...

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

That was incredible! The numbers were boggling! Drop me in the middle! Baja looks like the place to for a lot of cool marine life.

"very little is known about the species, including why they jump out of the water"   because it's flippin' fun! But the belly flop landings look a bit rough...

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

Adios sir/ma'am who gets struck in the head by one of those.

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.
