Florida manatee, Trichechus manatus latirostris, a subspecies of the West Indian manatee, endangered. Series of a mature adult male manatee with scars resting and warming himself over a large springhead. An adult male manatee rises for a breath near a large spring. He is reflected on the calm surface and so are his ugly propeller scars. He swims over remnants of wooden posts left by the Cousteau team in the early 1970s while they were corralling a rescued manatee named Sewer Sam. Tranquil warm blue freshwater, reflection and rainbow sun rays. Horizontal orientation with blue water and rainbow sun rays. Three Sisters Springs, Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, Kings Bay, Crystal River, Citrus County, Florida USA.
