Photographer's Note

These beatiful fish have traveled 300 miles from the Pacific, to this spot in the Shushwap River, to lay their eggs. Their beauty is short lived, as they detriorate physically almost before one's eyes over a periof of only a few weeks, until only their carcasses remain. But they were at their peak of beauty,with not a care in the world, when I took this picture on a warm, clear autumn day,
