There are several kinds of symmetry, one of which is radial symmetry. Echinoderms a.k.a. sea stars (or the less technically correct term starfish) exhibits this kind of symmetry. Trusty old Merriam-Webster defines such as “the condition of having similar parts regularly arranged around a central axis”.
Some flowers also have radial symmetry, case in point:
Imagine if human faces have radial symmetry. Heh!

Those starfish are unusually exquisite.
Welcome to the the ultra biodiverse Philippines! 🙂
Nice “starfish” shot, Melissa! 😉
So pretty, especially the starfish. It’s as if they are holding hands and don’t want to let go 🙂
