Bat stars (Patiria miniata), Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, British Columbia, Canada

The lush micro-climate of the Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands is home to many colorful creatures. Marine life thrives in oxygen-rich waters, while on land, spruce trees reach for the stratosphere. Batstars, also called sea bats because of their webbed rays, bejewel tidepools in a galaxy of mauves, purples and pinks.
