Time to move forward "manta rays week". This image is not very special from artistic standpoint - but it has historical significance for me. It's first manta ray I successfully captured with SLR camera - and even managed to light it up with strobe more or less professionally ! ^_^ Despite it being not so striking otherwise I still like remoras.

As you know I'm having a lot of fun on G+. Number of my followers is almost 10,000 now - just in less than two months - and I think it is going to grow a lot in next year. G+ is place to be. Especially when you can recieve such a wonderful present from your followers - check this amazing "reanimation" of one of my photos from super talented artist Dunken K. Bliths. Whoa, I've never seen anything like these before. Freezing motion into beautiful photo -yes, many people do. Reanimation ? This is totally unique !
