Just a Colossal School of Devil Rays
Florian Schulz, a German conservation photographer, snapped this amazing picture of thousands of Munkiana Devil Rays swimming through the ocean in a colossal school near Baja California Sur, Mexico.
“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 realize there are so many marvels in the oceans that we are yet to understand.”
