Sunflower Starfish on the hunt at Pacific Coast Tidal Pools, California. These starfish typically have 22 to 26 legs and are considered voracious hunters and the "Porshe's" of the starfish world. You wouldn't believe how fast they move and can be a bit of a challenge to photograph in a Tidal Pool setting (since I'm photographing through the water surface). Their typical food is sea urchins and other starfish.
