The Atlantic Logo By Alan Taylor of The Atlantic | Slide 1 of 25: Eclipse: Fifth Place, Wide Angle. From August to November, golden rays migrate in large numbers in Costa Rica's Pacific waters. No one knows the exact reason, but it might be for protection from predators or as a social or mating behavior. I was looking for this picture for years, and after several weeks of searching and working with a biologist who specialized in rays, I spotted a good place using my drone. I did several dives in this area and waited patiently. Then, when they came on top of me, I was shocked and forgot that I had a camera in my hands. Location: Big Scare, Bat Island, Costa Rica.
