ORANGE BEACH, AL (WVUE) -

A woman who was visiting an Alabama beach caught an incredible sight on camera. 

Elizabeth Watson Simpkins posted on Facebook that she and her husband were in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach in Alabama eating lunch when they saw airborne sting rays. 

Simpkins and her husband were walking on the beach near the Flora-Bama when the sting rays popped out of the ocean. 

According to National Geographic, sting rays such as manta, mobula, and devil are known as flying sting rays. They can jump at least six feet above the ocean's surface.
