I admit, nature-faker photo. Check out all the colors, ranging from "T. maculata orange" in the foreground to burnt orange with polka dots, cream with brown stripes, and the standard brown with chocolate stripes.
Branched rhinophores and little yellow dots.
The second generation after the 'bloom of roses' is here! Saw about 6 worn adults like the one on the right, and about 15 new little ones like the one on the left.
Juvenile, about 3 mm.
Tiny juvenile, about the size of a small Rostanga pulchra (~2 mm), which is what I thought it was at first. Those are grains of sand in the photo (and many of today's photos), courtesy of a large and enthusiastic labrador retriever passing to close to my photo area. Interesting how pale it is compared to the adults.
One of three today - others where the more usual brown version. All under 5 mm.

Like a Dwarf Brittle Star, but with mottled white markings.
Or perhaps a very orange, very small Western Spiny?
Tiny, about 2mm. Found on Seuratts Sea Grass (it was the same width as the grass; that's a white grain of sand next to it!). Orange with a purple "star" in the center, and purple bands on the spines.
Blue dots on claws.
Hanging out with the gull flock; caught a small fish (see other photos).
