I rolled over the stone to find the Seastar about to dissolve the Urchin (as they do!)
I spent 5 minutes photographing the egg clump (of the Nudibranch Aeolidia papillosa), seen to the right.
Despite the intervention of a squat lobster, the urchin, now out of its dangerous environment, was able to 'walk' off the stone and escape.
Picture three, taken in the water, shows that the seastar has released its lethal embrace.
