Feeding Ray

The wind was blowing early this morning (it usually waits until after my swim) so I ended up swallowing lots of sea water during my hour traversing the deep. This spotted eagle ray was intently feeding as I passed by. It was so busy feeding that it forgot to be camera shy. Fortunately for the ray, it was down too deep for me and I had to struggle to get close to it.

I also saw a very large barracuda, but it did not forget its aversion to cameras. They usually follow large schools of smaller fish, which I did not see today. The next time out I will look for the big school and, who knows, I may see some other large predator fish lurking.
