The Manta Rules

It is hard to describe the feeling when diving with these gentle giants, but every time I have been fortunate to dive with these magnificent creatures, it is an experience I shall never forget...

I captured this one with my super wide 10.5 mm lens while he hovered only inches above me for more than 5 minutes...I don't know if he was just curious or if he liked the bubbles hitting his belly...but it was one of those moments in life that will always be with me...

Wow! These worlds that I will never see are nothing short of fascinating - as is this image! It got me floored.
