Stingrays & Hairy Legs

Posted by

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday...
Those hairy legs are not mine!
While on a lagoon tour I ducked below the surface of the water with my little Panasonic DMC-TS4 underwater camera as a stingray swam by. They would come to the surface and brush against us waiting for food.

*In January, 2013 I got to go on my bucket list dream trip to the French Polynesian Islands of Tahiti, Moorea, and Bora Bora. A lot of photos were posted here at that time, but there are so many more that I never got to. I want to revisit those island photos now starting with Moorea.

Panasonic DMC-TS4 1/320 second F/3.4 ISO 200 30 mm (35mm equiv.)

A great capture. The Stingray does not seem to mind having company in the water.

Whew! Glad those weren't your legs. ;-)
I think I would be a little uneasy with them swimming by me. You were brave.
