Cayman Islands This one has no such opportunity.
Another fishie. Cayman Islands
Cayman Islands This one braves open water looking for food from the divers.
Yes, this is a stingray. And yes, it's about to flide over my head. No problem, though. Stingray undersides feel like velvet. Cayman Islands
Cayman Islands Divers with dead squid in their hands are very popular with the stingray set.
