SOARING over two metres above the water, you would be forgiven for thinking these winged wonders are a type of bird – but they are actually flying mobula rays. Captured on camera by zoologist and wildlife photographer Mark Carwardine, the rays, known to local fisherman as ’flying tortillas’, measure just over three feet in width. Carwardine encountered the giant rays demonstrating their acrobatic skills by bursting out of the water with their wings outstretched off the East coast of Baja, Mexico.
