The bright moment in an otherwise cloudy, cool day in Sidney-by-the-Sea was watching a sun starfish as it dealt with a dead crab.
I’m a patient watcher of these hard to catch natural moments. Starfish do not move quickly.
It rolled over the crab, heaved itself into a small hill, appeared to try it out for breakfast, then spit it out, still intact… and made a run for the hills.
Starfish typically eat mollusks. Why this crab?
How many times do we try something out, thinking it’s something else!
