The Batrays are putting on a show in front of matapules casa this morning. These critters are 2 to 3 ft. across and are quite common and totally harmless. This morning there is a school of about 200 of them flying straight up out of the water to a height of 6 or 7 ft. The surface water is all churned up. There are a number of theories why they do this from escaping predators to knocking parasites off their skin to just playing around. Scientists don't agree. This is not a frequent sight, but it is not uncommon either. It usually occurs during the summer months when the water warms up.
I think I'll pull out the binoculars, pop open a Tecate for lunch, pull up a chair, and watch the show.
