Ochre stars love mussles. You can see how far up the rock they have managed to feed.

Ochre Star
Pisaster ochraceus - very common around here. I'm not sure what's going on with the joined area - it looks swollen or damaged.

Ochre Star In The City
Wide angle shallow depth of field has a distinct look to it. Given the contrast here, I'm really impressed with the image.

Leather Star
Leather Star or Dermasterias imbricata to it's friends. Apparently it eats sea anemone's and sea cucumbers (unlike the Ochre Sea Star that his here to feed on shell fish)

Mottled Star
Mottled Star, sometimes called Troschel's Sea Star or Evasterias troschelii to it's friends. This particular one was hiding on the underside of a Lewis's Moonsnail egg collar - sand, eggs and mucus. This star is also a shellfish eater - the white spots on the arm tips are apparently a primitive eye.

Stars In A Rectangle
I was surprised to see so many together, especially on sand. This was pretty low on the beach so I don't think they were in trouble.
