Scuba Diving Virgin Islands: Great shots of Eagle Rays

Published on February 9, 2017 by calabashcottages

Scuba Diving Virgin Islands:  Brian Keene shared these beautiful shots of an eagle ray on a recent dive near Christmas Cove. Great shots, Brian. Wish I could take photos like that!

Some info about spotted eagle rays from  http://www.arkive.org/spotted-eagle-ray/aetobatus-narinari/:  The spotted eagle ray is very distinctive with a flattened body and triangular corners to the wing-like pectoral fins (2). The snout is rounded and pointed at the tip, so that it resembles a bird’s beak. The tail is long and whip-like and bears 2 – 6 spines (3). These eagle rays possess highly attractive colouring; the uppersurface is blackish-blue with many white spots, whilst the underside is white (2).

I first drifted to St John in 1982 with no plan whatsoever, not knowing a soul and knew right away I was home. I married my husband there in 1990. Paul is a retired builder and was responsible for the construction of all of Calabash Cottages homes. All these years later I still love my island and the great community we have here,
