Wow, it must be such a thrill to see these large rays so close! Excellent work Hal.

Well, they are so harmeless, that I swam for over 30' with a Giant one, over 4 meters, I could touch her anytime I wanted! I was with super wide angle, and yes, they are powerful creatures! I got a slight bump from one of the wings, and it was indeed very powerful...

Great image, Hal. Steve Irwin might disagree with the harmless part.
