Underwater Flight

"A massive school of mobula rays gather off the coast of Bahia Magdalena in Californa Sur, Mexico. We first encountered them at the surface, but pretty soon they dove down to about 60 feet," remembers Your Shot photographer Eduardo Lopez Negrete. "It was pretty hard keeping up with them from the surface, let alone dive down on a quick breath of air to try to capture a glimpse of this very beautiful sight."
