Manta Rays, Baa Atoll, Hanifaru Bay, Maldives

“Once in a while, manta rays appear in great numbers in a small bay in the Baa Atoll. The concentration of plankton must be very high in this particular bay, because up to 200 manta rays have been seen here at one time. It can be difficult to capture a nice composition because there are so many divers and snorkelers, causing fewer mantas to come to the bay in recent years.” -- Nature's Best Photographer, Tobias Friedrich
