WATCH: Photographer captures stunning encounter with giant manta ray


A nature photographer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico posted a stunning underwater video of a giant manta ray swimming over him.

Frankie Grant posted the video on Facebook with the caption: “A giant manta ray opening her cephalic fins as if to give me a hug.

Cephalic fins are the horn-like fins that protrude from either side of a manta’s head.

The serene nature of the encounter in the crystal blue waters lends itself to the feeling of a warm embrace.

On his website, Grant says he spends every day in the water photographing ocean life and spending time studying humpback whales.
