Photographer's Note

Numerous Sand Dollars near the shoreline of Samar Calbayog

This shot taken early morning while waiting for fishing boats to arrive, you can view 2 of them from a distance..

Common Sand Dollar(Echinarachnius parma) Sand Dollar live on sand bottom they feed on fine particles of organic matter, and are, in turn, eaten by bottom-feeding fishes. Am not sure but i think this marine animal is a close relative of the starfish(except that they are round in nature). When i was a kid i remember playing with them, throwing them like "frisbee disk" with other kids :-)Was naughty then..
