A while ago I posted some "classic" Manta ray shots - the silhouette and the gaping maw along with what passes here for rambling spiritual outpourings about why I dive. Well inspired by the Birdchick's use of video from her digital cameras and remembering my previous video posting I thought this video, taken on the second day of diving would give a good insight into the reality of the situation. Some things to look out for whilst watching:
- Check out the particulate matter going horizontally - indicative of the strong current; we were anchored firmly in the sand in order to watch (although notice how little effort our star puts in) and also of why the viz is rubbish and spooky.
- Notice the missing fin tip; lost to a shark bite or to stray fishing line caused amputation?
I hope you enjoy - next time I'm diving I might try some more video instead of stills.
