Starlight, Starbright is that a Starfish I see Tonight?

It was spring and the herring we starting to fill the bays, inlets and coves, they were everywhere. I was down on the shoreline jigging for herring to use as bait later in the season. We I had started fishing I noticed this starfish at my feet. Apparently, I had been jigging longer than I thought, as the starfish was now eye level and I had filled several buckets with herring. While I was packing up my gear, I grabbed my camera and took the picture. Original photos taken March 8th, 2005
