    This is maybe one of the greatest wild life phenomenon on the planet ever captured on lens.

    In the sea of Cortez, Baja California, Mexico, a massive congregation of Munkiana Devil Rays, relative of manta rays, was captured by a German photographer Florian Schulz, displaying unusual event which he dubbed as the Flight of the Rays.

    But as this wonderful perspective shows, for all the individuals leaping out that are visible at sea level, there are many more below the surface. The jaw-dropping image below shows only a quarter of the whole scene.

    No one knows why the rays gather like this, whether to mate, herd prey or migrate or just for the sheer joy of being together.

    Q: People often toss around phrases from political speeches, but it seems unusual for lines of legalese to make it into the blogosphere. What is it about Ginsburg’s writing that makes it so quotable?

    A: Ginsburg really makes a point to focus on the human aspect of the cases. When you’re talking about a political campaign speech, there’s a factor of lowest common denominator. You’re trying to appeal as many people as possible, so there are platitudes, and you have to massage things in a certain way. But when you’re dealing with a particular case, as the Supreme Court does, there are actual people involved with lives and interests at stake. And when Ginsburg writes, it’s really clear that she’s focused on the implications for people’s lives.
