Blue Spotted Stingrays

Blue spotted sting rays seemed plentiful in Raja Ampat.  They hide under table coral or shelves, and when disturbed, they very, very quickly speed off.  Often as our guides were looking for sharks, lionfish,, or other hiding creatures, these blue spotted stingrays would flush out.  I figured it would be impossible to get a photo of them - they are so fast I would not have time to aim and shoot before they would be gone.  However, once I got very lucky - I just happened to have my camera out and pointed the right way and when two flushed out I caught them on camera.  Granted, it's not close - but you CAN see them!
