Florida man goes viral with photobombed snapshot of manta ray
SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. - We got the chance to speak with the photographer, who tells us he is in shock over the huge response.
"It was exciting, it was very interesting! I knew it would get some response. I was thinking most people would enjoy it but absolutely not this response. This thing has gone globally," said Escandell. "I think you are looking at the peak of my amateur photography. It’s all downhill from this."
