My Favorite Images of Kauai.
Manta Rays are my absolute favorite, marine species. They are a pelagic fish, meaning, they travel the worlds oceans, following the currents that carry zoo plankton and krill, (they're main diet). The acrobatic display, these graceful creatures exhibit, is mesmerizing to say the least. Having a 15' wing span, pass a few inches from you, is truly, a spiritual experience.
Manta rays have the largest brain-to-size ratio of any cold-blooded fish. Studies have shown that manta rays may recognize themselves in the mirror, an ability indicative of high cognitive function, also shown by dolphins, primates, and elephants.
