First star

The tide was low and still dropping. The sun was shining. I picked a not-too-rocky beach and followed the water out. I came back with hundreds of photos of critters; I'll be sorting and processing all week.

For starters, here's a leather star.

Dermasterias imbricata, aka garlic star, leather starfish.

When I flipped it over, I discovered that it was just finishing off a small sea urchin.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
