So beautiful.......“The search for meaning is really the search for the lost chord. When the lost chord is discovered by humankind, the discord in the world will be healed and the symphony of the universe will come into complete harmony with itself.” ― John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Golden Ray Migration by Sandra Critelli: The Gulf of Mexico population of Golden Rays, in schools of as many as 10,000 migrate biannually between western Florida and the Yucatan, turning vast areas of blue water to gold. Measuring up to 7ft (2.1 metres) from wing-tip to wing-tip, Golden rays are also more prosaically known as cow nose rays.
Manta rays are large eagle rays belonging to the genus Manta. The larger species, M. birostris, reaches 7 m (23 ft) in width while the smaller, M. alfredi, reaches 5.5 m (18 ft). Both have triangular pectoral fins, horn-shaped cephalic fins and large, forward-facing mouths. They are classified among the Elasmobranchii (sharks and rays) and are placed in the eagle ray family Myliobatidae.
