Abstract

We are all impressed by the beauty of its colors and feathery rays when we come across with her in the deep blue ocean. She looks like she popped out of a fashion show. She quickly recognises us and keeps on staring to all divers surrounding her. She turns round and round smoothly trying to discover the possible threats. If we attempt to approach her, she looks more impressive than any other creature by opening her thorns like a feathery fan. Her message is clear: "If you threaten me I can be painful, please do not disturb me".
