After a full life of many challenges, Salmon successfully returns home, back upriver where he was born.
Happy Earth Day!
Have you hugged a salmon today?

Our salmon has another near brush with danger.
Will he make it to his destination?
I wasn’t sure whether to include this moment in Salmon’s life, but I wanted to be as candid as possible. Sorry. I don’t want to be a downer. I just want to share awareness and the importance of sustainablility on our precious planet. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a very good chart, detailing which kinds of fish are threatened and which fish are okay to harvest.

Down swoops a bald eagle. Salmon is not safe even from the air!

Not long after hatching from its egg, the baby Salmon dodges many aquatic critters bigger than he is, like the Dragonfly Nymph. Scary as they are, the nymph has protruding mandibles and is truly the ‘face-hugger’ of the fingerling world. Swim away fast, tiny salmon!

This is the first in a small series I’m working on, which follows the challenging life of a Salmon fish, taken in ‘snapshots’. Stay tuned for more as I add to the cartoon in the coming days.
Happy Easter everybody!
