Linckia laevigata (sometimes called the “blue Linckia” or Blue Star) is a species of sea star in the shallow waters of tropical Indo-Pacific. The most common color morph found is pure, dark or light blue, although one can find the aqua,   purple or orange variation throughout the ocean.
These sea stars may   grow up to 30 cm/11.75”  in diameter, with rounded tips at each of its  arms — some individuals  may bear light or darker spots along each of  its arms. It is firm in  texture, and possessing slightly tubular,  elongated arms common to most  of other Ophidiasteridae, and usually  possessing short, yellowish tube feet. An inhabitant of coral reefs and sea grass beds, this species is relatively common and found in sparse density throughout its range. 
The genus Linckia is known to be creatures with remarkable  regenerative power, capable of defensive autotomy against predators and  may reproduce asexually

The amazing display call of the White-rumped Sandpiper (by LabofOrnithology; via birdchick on Twitter)

Petit: I adore people who are so passionate about their work. Their passion makes *whatever* they do interesting. Yes, even recording bird calls.
