Found this baby starfish in a rock pool at the south end of Maclure's Beach. I didn't have a measuring tape or coins for scale on me. I estimated it was about a centimeter across.
I didn't see any adult star fish in the same rock pool.

Some of the wasps in this area had white abdomens, and some, like this one, had yellow abdomens. Not sure if they are the same species or two different ones.
