Contrast occurs between the red starfish and the blue of the sea. Also, the light pattern of the sand contrasts to the heavy pattern of the star. One of these days I am going to find one of these ~ Starfish
A hot pink starfish found on a SW Florida beach. Apparently, starfish can be the most amazingly intense colours but they fade quite rapidly when they get washed up. This one can't have been out of the sea for long then!
