A beautiful feather star waiting for plankton prey to pass by it’s home on the reef wall ⭐️
Feather stars use their tube feet very differently to other echinoderms! Instead of using them to move around the reef, feather stars actually utilize their tube feet to grab plankton floating by. Their feet can then actually differentiate between plankton types, allowing this ornate echinoderm to decide whether or not the energy costs of eating that plankton is worth it!
Refreshment dive just outside of the diving center here in Ballstad, Lofoten 😍 It was awesome!
If you haven’t dived for a long time or are a beginner, this is perfect! Thank you @tallitalianguy for making me feel safe and relaxed under the water👌🏻
