Default A Fever of Singrays in the harbour

G'day all

Walking across the harbour recently, I saw this [for me] astonishing sight - about 100 stingrays, each about 2metres across all swimming below me. [ps Experimented with pola filter as well with no apparent change to image]



As always, feedback welcome
Phil

That would have been a treat Phil, I've never seen more than two together.

Wow! Pretty impressive! Right place, right time... and with a camera!

A bunch of stingrays is called a "fever"? Who knew? That must've really been a sight to see... and photograph, no less! Well done, sir!

G'day Rocky
Thanks for your appreciation
As to 'Fever', I googled your opening words and Wiki came back with an interesting list of over 100 terms
