A Starfish, Pisaster, Hanging On

Pisaster ochraceus. Starfish took a hit from sea star wasting syndrome starting in 2013. The disease persists, but healthy Pisaster are now in the majority on my home beaches.


I found this five-armed beauty clinging to an overhanging ledge a few days ago, on June 14, 2018.
