Starfish at low tide

On our walk the other morning I spotted this starfish.  It caught my eye because of its unusual position.

We stopped to watch it.  It was moving ever so slowly.

I said to Colin that I thought that it was turning itself over.

It was low tide and I suspect that a wave had turned it over.

But look at how flexible it is yet it was moving so very very slowly.

Success at last.

Stretched out and resting.

Then along came a wave, higher then the others and off it went.  In retrospect I should have done a video of the event.  Never even thought of it as we were so engrossed in watching the starfish.

Yesterday’s sunset.

    What a privilege to see the Starfish and all the acrobats it went through to turn over. It looks very large.
    Nice sunset.

    Wow, that’s quite a feat and all in slow motion. What a wonderful thing to witness.

      It truly was amazing to watch. Nine years of walking this beach and this was a first for us. I guess just a question of being in the right pace at the right time.

  5. Very cool starfish, I happen to love them too, we often try and put the beached ones back in the ocean, never saw one do it by themselves though
