Tim Ray
image by Joe Weston Jr 2012/07/18

The ray, now known as Tim Ray was seen at Garden Eel Cove on March 19, 2012 at 10:06 A.M in about 50'of water along the wall just south of the south mooring. It was about 8' from wing tip to wing tip.

In the second image at left a few months later, we can see that the original image of Tim contains a couple of "splotches" of material that have now disappeared. We do not know what that material could be or how it got there.
