Such a sad demise

I told Mom it was okay for her to check on my beach again today and look what she found - this is a Spotted Eagle Ray - which sadly is on the endangered species list. It doesn't show up well in the photos but it was a beautiful slate grey with wonderful turquoise blue spots and had such an unusual head and blue eyes. Sadly - it looks like a fisherman must of caught it while fishing on the breakwater and just left it on the sand -  Mom doesn't understand why they couldn't of cut the line and just let it go - such a waste of a beautiful and unique life form. This one was just over 3 foot across (they can grow up to 10 feet across and weigh up to 500 pounds) You can read more about them here.
