Seeing Stars!

I had to share this photo, taken on one of the lowest tides of the year (minus 4).  I think all the seastars in south Puget Sound have migrated to Vaughn Bay to "get it on".  That orangey stuff on the top middle seastar is eggs.  There are 4 different stars represented in this photo, clockwise; short spined, mottled and ochre stars, the lower middle is a leather star which is not common in the south sound, first one I've ever seen and quite spectacular.
