Pair of devils

The story behind this print, in the words of photographer Merche Llobera: "In the midst of the Pacific Ocean's azure waters off Costa Rica, I waited for the perfect shot. Two Chilean devil rays were gliding gracefully through a swirling baitball of lantern fish. I marvelled at their synchronised movements, each dive and turn executed with precision. Patiently, I observed their collaboration, a masterful display of teamwork in pursuit of sustenance. Finally, the moment I had been waiting for arrived: the rays moved in unison around an almost perfectly round baitball and the sunbeams lit up the background."
