Diving Nassau, Bahamas: Southern Stingray

 

On our descent into the Sea Viking/Mike's Reef site in New Providence, Mat spotted this huge southern stingray, about 3-4' across. I got right in its face with my fisheye lens.

 

Feeling the need for a sense of scale, I motioned for him to come over into the frame...

 

... but apparently having two divers in such close proximity spooked the ray, and it took off in short order.
