Pic of the day 15 September, 2008

Measuring up to 7 ft (2.1 meters) from wing-tip to wing-tip,
Golden Rays are also more prosaically known as Cow Nose Rays.
Despite having poisonous stingers, they are known to be shy and
non-threatening when in large schools. The population in the
Gulf of Mexico migrates, in schools of as many as 10,000,
clockwise from western Florida to the Yucatan .
