The Giant, 2021

This oceanic manta ray was photographed during a dive in the Mexican islands of Revillagigedo, in the Pacific Ocean, 600 kilometres from the country’s western coast. This species can reach up to 7 metres. These majestic animals are very friendly and frequently approach divers, apparently attracted by the air bubbles.
