Blue-spotted Stingray (Taeniura lymma)

I found it while feeding on the ocean surface. My approach actually made him nervous and this means(on the wings shape) don't come close or i can be dangerous for you :) This warning was enough for me. They can be 2 meters long and 30 kg weigh and not always friendly. (RIP Steve Irwin) However, i left my camera there and had some amazing feeding shots afterwards.

Since it is active in the daytime, divers often see the beautifully colored blue-spotted stingray on coral reefs. It is most often spotted lying on sandy patches under coral heads and rocks. Often, its blue-striped tail sticks out and gives away its hiding place. Large, bright blue spots cover the disk, which is greenish brown. Like all stingrays, it has a venomous spine on its tail. As the tide rises, blue-spotted stingrays move in groups into shallow water to hunt for invertebrates such as mollusks, crabs, shrimp, and worms.

I myself actually have some amazing selfies with them :)

recorte de un especie que en este caso no parece del todo significativo.
