My god, its full of stars!

Asterias rubens to be exact. These starfish were numerous at the dive site, mostly on rocks but some were on the shell-gravel. If you look carefully at both photos, you can see a second smaller starfish nearby in each of them.

This individual below is eating a clam - the clam isn't obvious, but the body of the starfish is positioned over it, and the stomach has been inserted into the clam shell.
