    Stingray at Eagle Beach - Sept. 2015

    Saw this guy on Eagle Beach a couple of weeks ago swimming along the shoreline in front of Amsterdam Manor around 8am. (Excuse the poor photography - took the photo with my phone and didn't want to drop it in the water so my finger got in the way.)

    Still, a nice photo of a rare occurence

    That ray seems confused. Maybe it acquired a curious gene

    i really am not wild about them.... we often go to clearwater beach and in may/june/july we have to be very careful that we do not step on their barb tails. i have gotten quite good at the sting ray shuffle
    i am glad we do not have to do the shuffle in aruba.
