Sea Stars!

I’ve been too busy with work to do much exploring, photographing, etc. this week, but I have some photos of sea stars saved from my trip to Cumberland Island that I’ve been meaning to share.  (I’ve managed to break myself of saying “starfish” – they’re not fish, after all!)

I have yet to see any sea stars on our beach here on Jekyll Island, but we found them in abundance on Cumberland.  There were a lot of dead, drying ones along the tide line, but we also found a couple at the edge of the waves that were still alive.

Tube feet!

This one had been crawling across the sand – I had to crank up the contrast on the photo to make the trail show up, and it still doesn’t look that great, but I think it’s cool.
