Stars on Rock

I think the star on the right is a Leather Star. The closest
star is a Troschel's Sea Star. The feathery thing is probably a sea cucumber, but with two predators near by, it may not be there long.

Troschel's Sea Star

Apparently these things eat barnacles and limpets. Evasterias troschelii.

Sunflower Star
I wonder where that leg went. Pycnopodia helianthoides - 18 legs seems to be common for the Sunflower Stars I've seen.
