School of Fish Follow Manta Ray as It 'Frolics' Near Australian Coast

A school of fish followed a manta ray as it swam in waters off the coast of Forrest Beach, Queensland, earlier this year.

Louise King recorded this drone footage of the fish and its posse in early March, she said.

“The crystal-clear waters of North Queensland are the perfect environment for the manta ray to frolic and feed off the abundance of jelly prawns,” King said. “A truly magnificent sight.”
