Photo of the day

Thanks much to Mike from Canada for providing the link to this awesome gallery of amazing photos of animals congregating.   I’ve got to agree that the stingrays are the coolest (and a larger version here):

In the stunning photo above, German conservation photographer Florian Schulz captured thousands of stingrays swimming through the ocean in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

As he states, “During an aerial expedition I came across something I had never seen before. Not even my pilot, who has surveyed this area for 20 years, had seen anything like it. As we got closer we started to discover its nature: an unprecedented congregation of rays. The group was as thick as it was wide, all heading towards the same direction. I have asked around why this took place but no one has been able to explain it to me. After such a unique sighting, I realise there are so many marvels in the oceans that we are yet to understand.”

    I didn’t know that stingrays could fly (or air glide) until I saw this.
