Starry Starry Night!

... Finally, after many tries. Just wanted to try to post a pic here.

Caught this little fella at Changi Boardwalk last weekend. Almost swalloed the whole hook, with prawn meat.

Anyway, unhooked it and let it free after taking the pics. First Starfish for me using my rod.. ha ha...

You may want to look up this thread on how to post a picture. To use the Image

Not sure too, but I was told that some species had a nasty sting. Looked nice though, so let it go back to its natural home. :nod:
