I took this photo at a beach north of Santa Cruz, California on New Year's Day, 2007. We watched as the starfish, with its stiff pink arms, glided along the bottom of this tidal pool. He was cruising right along. Underneath the star arms were lots of little whitish legs. You can see the mark one his arms made in the sand as he moved along. The seagulls seemed to fancy eating these creatures, or at least catching them.
