Made my way up to the Baker River here in Washington and found some spawning sockeye salmon who were polite enough to let me take a few photos ;). Comments and criticisms welcomed! Thanks for looking.

Awesome colors! The second one is my favorite. Love the reflections on the surface.

When the fish are spawning the males will fight with each other over access to the females. They can really go at it. I was surprised these guys still looked as healthy as they did even after the short time watching them.
