NOAA Photo Library Image - expl5452

A large pink brittle star witha venus flower basket sponge in the background. What appears to be a small plastic bag that has found its way to the seafloor lies beneath brittle stars arms in the 3 and 6 o'clock positions. This starfish has six arms, the one at 7 o'clock appears to be lost a short distance from the central disk.
