Paradise- my fascination with starfish

I am not sure why this is, or even when in over these 16 years of diving it happened, but I have now found starfish to be so cool. They come in all different sizes and colors.... here are a sampling from The Maldives!

I love Starfish as well. I remember once I was in 7th grade I had a paper to do and I did about the Starfish... I felt in love with them.

Neat! I have seen some when scalloping in the gulf of mexico, but they were all the same. I had no idea how different they could be. And so beautiful!

They really are beautiful. I've never seen a live starfish before.

Hope you are having a nice Sunday so far.

Great...not only the starfish, but the multicolored field beneath them! I've seen a few in tidal pools along the Calif. coast, but not such variety! Anemones are really nice too...in fact most things in the ocean are so awesome! Thanks!

I never knew there were so many kids of starfish. They look so pretty.

I have loved starfish for a long time too...ever since I first saw them in BC/Seattle as a kid. And I enjoyed teaching about them when I taught an Ocean unit to my class. But I've never seen that many different ones! Wow.
