Congrats Jordan, your shower of colorful stars is our our Spotting of the Day!

Bat stars detect their prey using sensors at the end of each arm. Once a food item has been identified, the bat star extends its stomach over the prey and liquefies it into a “soup” with its digestive juices, before slurping it down!

Cool - I think of such colors in the tropics, not in the North. Did you find them all together or arrange them together for the photo?

Lovely!! Look at all those colors!!
