When we are in FL we see a lot of rays migrating. It is very interesting to be in the ocean and suddenly shadows appear. Sometimes, the rays splash in the water as they flap their wings. If you are standing in the water, the rays will separate and swim around you, as if you are a boulder or post. There are many warnings at the beach, encouraging swimmers to do the "stingray shuffle" where you shuffle your feet in the water, rather than stepping. The shuffle will clue the stingrays to your presence and they will leave you alone. If you "step" you risk stepping on a stingray and getting stung.
