Photographer William Drumm of Denver, Colorado, has been traveling to Socorro Island over the past two years in hopes of swimming and capturing images of the world’s largest manta rays. This 2-minute video shows some of the beautiful encounters Drumm has had.
Caters Clips writes that the shots were captured between October 2017 and April 2018.
The largest manta rays on Earth can reach a whopping 23 feet (7m) in width, or about the length of four humans lined up head to toe.
The Mythical Mantas of the Socorro Islands. I'm almost finished with my short film Beneath Socorro, and will show you guys next week! In it I use underwater lasers to measure the huge manta rays of the Socorros. I also happen to be going out with @solmarv to film Great White Sharks next week, so it's going to be an exciting one! #BeneathSocorro #SolmarV
