Monochromia Sea Star

My contribution to Monochromia this week



I’d never seen a live Starfish before.  What a neat find during a morning walk on Siesta Beach.

A little Starfish research offered the following info:

Starfish come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, but they all resemble a star.  They have spines covering their upper surface and a soft underside.  Starfish are not actually fish. They do not have gills, scales, or fins.  They have tiny tube feet to help them move along.

  1. Thank you for not taking him out of the water. Most people take them for a souvenir, but their interest is short-lived and the creature died for nothing.

  2. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a live starfish, either. I only see the ones who have washed up on shore and stranded. I love that this one is in the water, with the bubbles and the movement of the waves so clear.

  3. I have seen many sea stars in all sorts of colors, but never knew there were striped ones. Was your picture taken in the morning? If so that might explain it… He was still in his pajamas! ‘-)

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
