With all the talk of satellites falling from the sky recently and the recent disapointment of a completely overcast Draconid meteor shower, I found it kind of amusing to see a star did actually fall on my lawn.

Sorry the picture is a bit dark as I noticed it on my way out to work this morning and the flash versions didn't turn out so well.


Due to the ongoing TopGun training ongoing between the seagulls, osprey and bald eagles above my home, it's not unusual at all to find all kinds of muscle and clam shells, dead crab pieces, even flounders (sometimes still alive)on my lawn, this is the first starfish though. I should have put down a scale reference as it was a decent sized one at about 4 1/2 inches tip to tip.

That's pretty neat Murph. Makes my autumn leaves and pine needles even more boring than they were yesterday. smile

Though someone several blocks away from me will find a small RC helicopter in their yard - my son lost it when the throttle stuck open and the wind took it, never to be seen again by us.

I wish! That might have saved me the replacement cost from the hobby store. smirk

That's funny Murph, same thing happens around here with the Ospreys. Ours always seen to be the run of the mill baitfish or maybe an occasional crab.

Never starfish though.

Once they start dropping live lobsters, give me a call.
We'll work out a deal.

Haven't seen a bird who has figured out how to dive that deep yet.

But if it's free lobster you crave, just come visit when it's in season I almost never pay for lobster (in season) unless I'm expecting a large crowd. In fact, I remember my grandfather refusing to even eat lobster because when he grew up, it was "the poor kids food."
