Gigantic School Of Flying Rays Filmed Leaping

7 posts in this topic

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...

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...
