Manta Ray,  Karang Makassar  - Indonesia

Power and grace - it is the only way to describe the ghost-like passage of a reef manta. While not as large as its gigantic cousin, the oceanic manta (with a 28 foot wingspan), these smaller reef mantas (18 foot wingspan) seem equally majestic as they glide past coral heads - their mouths open wide, flying into the current, looking right at you as they pass - they look right into your mask.
