Starfish Pictures from Starfish Island in Palawan

In one of the beaches at Palawan. I was able to take pictures of a female starfish. These were taken at the first island (Starfish Island) we went to during the island hop.

Female starfish by the beach, underwater.

I picked the starfish up and examined it. Divers in the area said it was female because it didn't have a 'horn' in the center. There was one male starfish around to compare this to.

I turned the starfish over and could really see and feel how alive it still was as its body moved while I was holding it.

Seeing underneath the starfish.

A closer look at the starfish.

After taking photos I returned it back to the water. Divers said it would last about an hour out of the water.

Pining, thanks. I'm glad you liked the pictures.

Miss Elle, that was my first time to hold a starfish actually. It was a great experience and it was a good thing I was able to take pictures to share over the net. :)
