Blue spotted ribbontail ray: Taeniura Iymma
•Found: Common throughout the tropical Indian and Pacific oceans in nearshore coral reefs.
•Lifespan: Yet to be determined
•Size: 14inches in width
•Diet: Molluscs, crabs, small bony fish and worms.
•Conservation status: Near Threatened
•Dangerous?: They are of the stingray species which is capable of injuring humans with their venomous tail, but will usually flee if threatened.
•Cool facts: Unlike other stingrays, the Bluespotted Ribbontail ray does not bury itself, instead it shows off its bright blue spots to indicate its venom to other predators and scare them off, similar to the Blue-ringed octopus.

There is nothing “base model” about #chevrolet#corvette#stingray. The feature list is staggering in the 3LT 2014 Corvette. And once you drive it, you understand the difference between a #supercar and a regular car. Effortless driving at any speed. Comfort for cross-country touring. And traffic stopping good looks! #chevy#c7corvette@wkchevy

Growing up, my family was always very loving and kind. As long as you were in their same set of beliefs and traditions.
If not, it wasn’t pretty. Sure, they would be nice to you to your face, but the moment you were out of earshot, the shit talking began. And I participated in it for a long long time,
Up until I came out to myself. Then it hit me. My family made fun of people like me. I had too until I realized I was one of “them”. Then it stopped, then it all stopped. I realized just how hateful, judgmental, and downright mean we had all been.
So when they would start up again, I’d walk away. I’d hide. God forbid my family notice or they’d pounce on me too. Not as viciously but still nonetheless.
Then I started standing up for myself and those who my family ridiculed. I did not get the outcome I thought I would. Instead of turning against me, my family apologized. They stopped.
THAT is the energy of the stingray. Separate yourself from the old ways. Even if it means cutting ties, which I was ready to do. Thankfully, I didn’t have to , and I am extremely grateful for that.
Very rushed shot, as the ray was in the middle of making a run for it, but I thought it turned out pretty alright. Nearby fish started to swim around what I thought was a stick at first, and then they aggravated the ray enough that it decided it was time to leave. Never seen one up close like this! #goprotravel#stingray#ray#ocean#beach#travel#florida
