That's quite a star - looks very healthy (and big). Excellent

Beautiful! I got some photos of some sort of purple starfish over in the Sechelt area of BC about a year ago. I was quite fascinated by them.

Sort of looks like a pair of rhinestone-studded boots! Only better.

How beautiful, what a great and starry find. Too far away from the Pacific Ocean to have seen one but the beauty of blogs means I have now.

You captured the texture brilliantly with your photography. I will definitely be on the lookout for one next time I'm at the ocean (lucky me I'm in N.Ca!)

What an amazing picture! You are so lucky to have found one of these amazing creatures in a rock pool. I have only ever seen one at an aquarium.

Best wishes and Happy Wednesday,
Natasha.

At first, I thought this was a cowboy boot! LOL Then I looked again and got it, so beautiful!

What a beautiful creature! I love to gaze into rock pools and see who lives there, but I've never seen anything like that!
