Artist's Description

As a kid, I loved exploring rock pools and finding all kinds of weird creatures. My favourite were the starfish. I don’t see as many these days.

Patiriella calcar, commonly known as Carpet Sea Star or Cushion Sea Star or Eight-armed Sea Star, is an Australian species of sea star.

This colourful critter was captured in a rock pool at Maroubra near Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Canon G12.
