Stingrays

Click on these images to enlarge.
Above....Bill and the stingrays.
Very affectionate. This fella kept coming back for scritches.

Handsome little things...


Some NOT so little.




And they come in black too.





The tips of their wings come out of the water, look like little shark fins....

Great photos. Before my husband had a work accident in 1982, he loved to go snorkelling/spearfishing and said how large some of the stingrays were . he gave them a wide berth...the larger ones. They were a minor worry compared to sharks which almost had him walking on water at times.

They are strange creatures. They may think the same about us too.

Good lord, those are nice. Reminds me of the last time we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium....long time ago.

These are great photos, Bill! Where were you that you could play with the stingrays?

If you are ever in my neck of the woods, we have a marine center here where you can pet the stingrays and a couple of sharks as well! Would enjoy seeing you and your lovely wife whenever you are ready to come!
