Manta rays gather by the hundreds to feast on plankton swarms in the Maldives' Hanifaru Bay (pictured in an undated photograph). Sometimes swimming in spiral patterns, the rays engage in "cyclone feeding," which is rarely seen outside of these plankton-rich waters.

(See more manta ray photos in National Geographic magazine.)
