A Fishy Tale
Last week I went down to the Humber River to see if I could see any of the salmon run which involves a lot of high flying by these big fish as they attempt to pass the small dams along the river. When they approach each dam they seem to circle around and then take a run at the small waterfall sections and try to hit the top edge and then swim upstream to the next dam and continue the journey up to their spawning grounds. You will have to take my word for it that there is a salmon visible in this pic - that dark streak in the lower right of the waterfall is a fish just starting to jump. I found out that it takes a lot of time to catch a pic of one in mid air and a fast finger on the camera. I wasn't successful!
