Hungry starfish eating an Octopus

When starfish go blue (on octopus)

I thought it would have been the other way around and this poor octopus would be eating the Starfish but the caption that comes the photo reads:

"her job of guarding her eggs is finished; her emaciated body is devoured by a swarm of sunstars".

So the circle of life in action on the sea floor as the octopus just apparently gives up,

Like Padme in the Revenge of the Sith,

Tastes like fish?

Sunstars, starfish, it makes for an unexpected picture.

Look at that eye staring at you.

Is it a look of 'laying back, thinking of England'? It actually looks like a dead eye, I suspect the octotpus died a natural death and then the Starfish have scavenged it for a meal.

What else do Starfish eat? Cockle anyone?

Here's a star fish in captivity that's been fed.

And just to cap off, this starfish caught himself a fish! His chips got soggy however...
