We were underwater at about 45ft. at a cleaning station waiting for what seemed forever. Then after 40 minutes out of the blue comes this huge Manta flying gracefully overhead. This was the first Manta we had ever seen and Wow! what a beauty.

Taken while I was wreck diving in the Philippines. The sea turtle came flying past me and I only had time to get one shot off and fortunately timing and positioning was right where its fins were completely spread out as if coming in for a landing.
