Hi Nasra!
How nice to "see you"

My first time was also last year - I have been digging in my archives for the pics I took when I participated with a surveying volunteer crew...

will continue looking!

BIG HUG

Beautiful creatures. I wish people were more serious about treating the planet with care. There is so much to lose.

they are the coolest - it was amazing to hold them - once I got over the "yeaks" factor...

Everything new takes me getting used to dear Anne Marie...

I am still not holding larger crabs OR snakes!

Wow was the starfish really that colour? You haven't photoshopped it? Sorry I have to ask I've not seen very many starfish (used to see one every week in my local petshop: they had marine aquaria)... I see you're still posting amazing pictures as per usual! I did a post on our local birdsong today. Had a bird outside my window pretending to be an alarm clock at 5 o'clock Sunday morning!!

"Angeldust" said...

Hello Katie!!!!
nice you like....

"Angeldust" said...

thanl you - gracias David - welcome

"Angeldust" said...

hello gledwood

at 5:00AM!!!!!!!!!? lol

yeap, that's the colour and the orange bellow is quiet bright too

there are 5 varieties of starfish

I believe we are mostly familiar with one...
you should see them at low tide at the Pacific Rim Nat. Park!!!

I was thinking earlier today about wanting to visit your blog (and other's as well) - just been super busy with volunteering and my art matters. I will make it over soon....

I am totally bushed!

Love and joy

PS
NO touch-ups of any kind - generally I don't.
BUT, post some totaly manipulated ones at my wordrapture blog

See what you mean about the critter at the bottom ... my partner is a Cancerean ... ooooooooh possesive. :o) Just a little anyway.
thanks for sharing some great pictures.

"Angeldust" said...

It is quiet a "soap opera" down there!
Mostly for "adults" only - the Biologists chide, but the male crab will actually kidnap and hold hostage a female while molten - as she cannot really fight back being so tender... hm!

Margie said...

BEAUTIFUL!
Have had you on my mind.
Will call again soon.
Did you get my message?

Sending lots of HUGGGGGGS my dear friend!

Margie

he-he-he

Margie said...

We were thinking of each other at the same time....now to me, that is so special.

It was so wonderful talking tonight.
I am so glad.... you are my friend!

Thank you, Alicia.
I'll call again this week.

FRIENDSHIP

Among the priviliges
of friendship
is the opportunity
to share
some of the deeper feelings
of human life....
the joys and sorrows.

Pain is lessend
when shared
with a friend
who cushions the blow.

Joys are doubled
when shared
with a friend.
Then two hearts are happy.
Two people
Laugh and sing.

A friend
is for sharing

No matter what the turmoil
everything
can come out
in the presence
of a friend.

In a friendship
there is
the magical warmth
of the human heart
that surpasses
the power od medicine.

Nitey nite.
Love and hugs to you.
I'm thinking of you right now, with a smile on my face.

In friendship we find nothing
false or insincere,
everything is straightforward

"Angeldust" said...

That is absolutely lovely - thank you dear Margie

"Angeldust" said...

Dearest MArgie

I tended to Sonia's request and then - got a late night call...
As I read your wonderful poem (shared it)

life goes/flows on...
was totally bushed.

There is something to be said about sharing ones feelings - both negative and positive - because at the end, what one is left with is needed gentle transformation.

Margie said...

Thinking of you today.
Hope all is going well.
It's been a busy day for me....
off work today, but have had a million errands to do.
Off to a ballgame now with Jake.

So happy you liked the poem:):):)

Friends want to know
and be known...
A friendship, in fact
grows
as friends get to know
each other better.
It is so special
to be getting to know
all about each other:):)

"Angeldust" said...

Are you sure you "retired" for the summer?

Yes, it is true what you say.
I posted your (my) poem at word.

Hope you are also keeping well and out of mischief looking forward tohear from you.
Be around tomorrow and Saturday.

Pauline said...

This is an incredible photograph. I never knew star fish were so colorful. Fabulous! Keep discovering.....

"Angeldust" said...

until this experience I didn't either... although, we have oozles of them on the rocks at the end of our pier...

My "special friend" photographed them (also) around Main a few years back and were included in his New YorK show... so, out to the beach you go!

Rauf said...

Oh dearest Angel, never seen a purple star fish, thank you so much, never heard of it. Its so beautiful. i still believe that nothing has seriously gone wrong with this word as yet. But its time to wake up, we had just too many warning signals.

Had severe cold and fever. Completely exhausted, not many pictures though, but had wonderful time in the wilderness.

lots of love and Hugs

"Angeldust" said...

Hello dear Raufie - good to know you are back home safe.

Purple starfish are truly awsome!
:)
Glad you liked.

Hope you get better soon.
Love and hugs back to you

Princess Banter said...

Purple's my favorite color! Omg, that starfish is so cute!

"Angeldust" said...

welcome Princess
purple is a good/higher energy colour...
the colour of royalty, hm?

slskenyon said...

Those are some amazing pictures, and fantastic colors as well. I had no idea there was a World Oceans Day--and me from the Ocean State of all places.
