Earlier this week I posted a photo collage of the Dungeness River. There’s currently a huge run of spawning pink salmon. A day or two ago I found a better vantage point for fish-watching. There were dozens of fish, literally as far as the eye could see. And the closest ones – drat! – were hanging out in the shade.
Here’s a variation on that old “Where’s Waldo?” theme. There are seven fish in this shot. Can you see them?
This pink salmon run is being called the biggest since 1963. Spawning ground surveyors have counted more than 100,000 fish in the Dungeness, all of which are wild-born (they are not hatchery fish).
