Manta Ray
When we brought our kids and our family to join us in Hawaii to celebrate our 50th anniversary, we gifted them a night manta ray tour. We saw exactly zero manta rays and many of us got seasick. Last year Jim and I had dinner at a restaurant that offers dining spots with view of manta rays feeding near by but again, zero manta rays. We went back this year (twice in fact) and were delighted to finally get to see them. The darkness, movement of the manta rays and movement of the water made shooting hard but I was delighted to get some shots I like!
