Mobula is a genus of ray in the family Myliobatidae (eagle rays).Their appearance is similar to that of manta rays, which are in the same family. Species of this genera are often collectively referred to as "flying mobula" or simply "flying rays", due to their propensity for breaching, sometimes in a spectacular manner.
Devil Rays have an interesting breeding courtship behavior that involves breaching the ocean shooting into the sky and gliding for a split second. Hard to predict. Hard to shoot. Incredible to simply witness. This was a brand new experience for me off the coast of San Blas while heading to Isla Isabel
