I got these photos in an email today; scroll down for the text. I'm posting them as part of Carmi's Thematic Photographic - which is Nature!
Looking like giant leaves floating in
the sea thousands of Golden Rays are
seen here gathering off the coast of
Mexico. The spectacular scene was
captured as the magnificent creatures
made one of their biannual mass
migrations to more agreeable waters.
Gliding silently beneath the waves
they turned vast areas of blue water to
gold off the northern tip of the Yucatan
Peninsula. Sandra Critelli, an amateur
photographer, stumbled across the
phenomenon while looking for whale
sharks.I have already forgotten who provided the link to this story, but I have to say THANKS! It was great!
