It's that time of year again when the salmon head upstream for their annual mating spree... then they die.
These fish have spent their entire life in the fresh waters of The Great Lakes system.

  3. Doesn't sound like a great life on any account. Do you fish for salmon in the rivers?

  6. And I thought I was miserable for the many years I was single! This puts things in an entirely different perspective. Once again, we humans don't have it so bad, do we?

  7. They have amazing power to those bodies.. and incredible determination. I've watched, photographed and recorded them many times at the ladder in Bowmanville. They never cease to amaze me.
