Manta, Manta, Manta – nope its an Eagle Ray

Sitting on the boat having lunch when the cry went out Manta, Manta, Manta!  Grabbed my camera and rushed outside!  A Manta Ray really??? Nope it was two Eagle Ray’s.  The were quite large though so for those that have not seen a Manta Ray before it is easy to see why they were confused.  It is clear from the spots on the pointed wing that it is an an Eagle Ray.

Great to see :-)
