6th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
A greeting starfish I came across, among hundreds, after a hurricane came through on Kiawah Island, SC.
Walking the beach after a strong storm struck Kiawah Island, S.C., Pendred found a starfish washed ashore, its arm gently uplifted. "In my mind," he recalls, "I thought that was a cry for help, or maybe it was just trying to say, 'Hello, please try not to step on me.' I took a few photos and then picked him up and laid him back in the water."
