Starfish 1 by Schwartze Starfish 1 by Schwartze
Thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! Also, thank you very much, CelticStrm-Stock, for being so wonderful and bringing it to the attention of the staff here. I hope that someone will find this useful. Please remember that this is entirely royalty free stock, so your only limitation is imagination. The only reason I ask for link backs and credits when possible is so that other people can find me too! 

Story: I was walking along the beach after a storm in Pensacola, Florida. I was trying to get seashells for my mother, but I also wanted stormy ocean stock (which was a fail). I found this little guy on the beach with my sister and snapped a few pictures when we discovered that he was still wiggling a bit, so we threw him back. 


-------~..~:: RULES ::~..~-------
1. Nothing overly suggestive, racist, or distasteful (blood is okay)
2. MUST link back HERE if you use this image
3. NO CREDIT ON IMAGE NECESSARY
--(so don't note me about it. lol. I won't get mad)
4. If uploaded to DA, please credit me in the description.

I heard that it has eyes at the tips of their arms. Wouldn't it hurt to use eyes as feet?

That's terrible! I don't like hope people don't care about aquatic creatures. Looks like they don't care about the oceans due to the overfishing and living trash on the shores carelessly..

I thought your rules said "nothing overly racist" and I was like...... does that mean mildly racist is okay? wtf?" then I read it right and was no longer confused. That is the end of my dumb story

awesome photograph, I didn't know starfish could do that
