We were kayaking on Torrecilla Lagoon in Municipality of Loíza, Puerto Rico. While on a cozy channel surrounded by mangroves and enjoying the tranquil ambience, we noticed a partial silhouette. Next to one of the trunks lying on the water, we noticed a submerged manta ray figure. However, we witnessed a great optical illusion of a manta ray, created by the trunk’s shadow on the water. It was fantastic! Do you want to look at it? Enjoy digging for the manta ray’s partial silhouette in this article’s photo gallery.
