This is Nandi. She is a beautiful manta ray that was rescued from shark nets off the coast of Durban, South Africa. Manta rays are the largest rays in the ocean, and Nandi is nine feet across! She swims through the Voyager tank so gracefully.

magnificent to see these creatures in the water. BTW, I am glad you are enjoying the Chihuly art on my website. I am going to continue to post more over time and intersperse the Chihuly eye candy with the desert, interesting cactus, resorts, special events and other photos.

I too like the light beams through the water. Nice shot.

I think she's staring at me! Very cool.

Wow- The shafts of light, the curl of the ray's 'wing," the flitting quality of the light on the fish, the tropical colors create a sense of motion and surging life.

She is smiling at me!The shafts of light and dazzling water make the photo. Love the curl of her "wings". And there is that wicked tail!! The only thing that could make this capture any better would be if it had been taken in the wild.

Can't think of anything to say but what has already been said. It's a lovely shot, Kerri!
