Yes, very soothing. Lovely. I love those colors too.
That looks like a very bif starfish. Happy WW! :)
My husband is thinking taking a dive trip to Manado. I will have to show him this shot (and last weeks too) The blue star fish is pretty, are there any colors they don't come in? Happy WW!
I don't think I have ever seen a blue starfish like that.Thanks for sharing, as always! I enjoy your underwater photos.
What a fabulous color sea star. You have the most beautiful pictures.
Gorgeous! I'm not sure which is more beautiful - the ocean or the critter! Hapy WW!
Wow ! that's beautiful !
Beautiful! I always know I'm in for a treat when I visit. Happy WW
Really pretty coloring and a great shot!
THAT is why i wish I could dive!Awesome shot.
The underwater world is full of spectacular sights like this :) You like diving?
Seems like there are some colors that you can only see under the sea. I don't know of anything that is that color of blue on land. Hey - is that the "right blue"?
It reminds me of these big bluish-orange sea stars that come ashore in St. Augustine. They're everywhere in the tidal pools and my daughters love to save them by bringing them back to the sea.
More beauty from "down under". Happy WW.
What a beautiful pic. I love the ocean. Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)
Oh my, I've never seen a blue one before. Just beautiful.Happy WW!
A lovely blue starfish (not really blue?) relaxing in the surf... :) Welcome back, Bobbie! Hey to Jerry!
Hi Bobble -- Thank you for sharing this with us. As far as I (an old sow's ear) am concerned this is soooo neat. And such a pretty picture. Your blog/web site is so pretty and blue too.Happy WW! Thanks for the visit. You write a lot with those two fingers. Maybe it is time to graduate to four fingers and two thumbs. Some do. I use all ten but learned that in high school...
Beautiful. I always enjoy your underwater shots...
Amazing - probably would have never seen one if it hadn't been for you. It matches your blog.
Excellent picture, very calming. Almost jealous of the starfish!
I have ear troubles and can't dive but I truly love underwater shots. This one is awesome!Happy WW!
Wheeee! That starfish looks ready to dance!
gorgeous picture,i've have never seen a blue starfish before..thanks for visiting my blog.happy ww
I love underwater shots. Great picture!
Great picture Bobbie. We had the most fab time in Barbados. It is really beautiful. Thanks for visiting. Love the starfish :)Happy WWKyla
It must be so much fun to see these starfish in the wild! I had always wanted one when I was a kid but we only had freshwater tanks! Happy WW
I just love the underwater photos. I'd love to get back into scuba diving just for the photos. Nice work.
VERY COOL. I couldn't scuba dive, I am a bit claustophobic (ocean is huge right?) It's the mask. Jennifer
Hi Bobbie - I didn't realize they came in blue - it looks so soft and fragile. Simply beautiful!!Kathy
I should always start with your blog for my WW round, because your pictures never fail to wow me...Thanks for dropping by, have a great WW!My post: "Soccer stars".
Oh... another eye-treat from you!! I love the blue starfish :D
Hello to all of our Wordless Wednesday friends. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments. We're always glad for your feedback on our photos.To all of you who have said you'd never seen a blue sea star before, this particular one is relatively common in Indo-Pacific waters.@ Shannon - The Manado area is a fantastic dive destination. Tell your husband to spend as much time as possible at the Bunaken Island marine park. It is fabulous.@ napaboaniya - Umm, yeas. I guess you could say we like diving. ;-}@ Chris - Yes, you are right. That color is uncommon in nature -- at least for critters. I guess it is the right blue -- for that species, at least!@ Pete - Lucky daughters you have to get to play in tide pools. I'm sure the sea stars appreciate being "saved." ;-}@ Jim - To be honest, I DO use two fingers on each hand, most of the time. Sure wish I had learned to touch type, though...@ Daisy - Now that you mention it, he does look like he's about to dance.@ Kyla - I saw the photos you posted from Barbados. I just knew that you and Alex would have a marvelous time there.@ Mon@rch - Given your intense love of nature, I really hope you have an opportunity to visit the underwater world one of these days.@ Robert - I encourage you to do just what you said you'd like to do: get back to scuba diving.@ Jennifer - You are not the only one who feels claustrophobic when wearing a dive mask. It's actually quite a common reaction. Try again some time -- someplace sheltered and un-scary.@ Kathy - Sea stars in this genus (Linckia) are all kind of plump like this one, and their skin is a bit like textured rubber. Other species in this genus come in different colors - pink, greyish, red, pale green -- even purple!@ ZJ - Your blog always provides a lot of "eye treats," too. I love your travel photos.Bobbie
What a cool picture! The sea is an amazing place.
wow - very cool starfish! happy ww. :)and thanks for stopping by my ww.
Beautiful color and textures in this, great work Bobbie.
What a wonderful underwater scene. I really love to see those things but I have never done scuba diving all my life. Maybe someday I could, by the grace of God. Anyway, thanks for the exotic photo. God bless you all always.
We welcome your comments and invite your questions. Dialogue is a good thing!Bobbie & Jerry
