The Striped Sea Star is normally more vividly colored than this one, sometimes orange and black, and sometimes rose and gray. I don't find them very often.

The lovely Sunflower Star can have up to 24 arms. Sometimes it seems to glow from within. It comes in shades of orange and brown, with dabs of violet. I'm always sad to see a gull eating one, arm by arm. It was great to find dozens of these today, since many have died with the sea star wasting disease.

I found Ochre Stars of brown, purple, violet, and orange today. With the sea star wasting disease, I was happy to find so many healthy ones!

Saw a purple one nearby, apparently healthy but too deep in a hole to photograph.

This Fat Blood Star apparently has the sea star wasting disease that's killing so many beautiful sea stars along the Pacific Coast in the past few months.

Bat Star- I usually see the orange ones and I know they can be a light yellow, but this Bat Star is looking a little to pale.
