Born to Spawn

No, no.,.stop averting your gaze. My macro is great but not THAT great.

These are baby salmon or 'alevins'. They are being raised at school to augment our school breakfast program which is surprisingly low on Lox.
Photos taken because, ummm, they look weird and I wanted to see if I could take a macro through water. Or more likely, as Carlo Ferroni enjoys pointing out 'Because I have a camera.'


  1. I'm pretty sure thesea are evil spawn.

  2. Hayley got to help raise chinook in her 5th grade class. The kids even got to release them into one of the rivers. Of course, that was a few years ago. Doesn't seem like it has been that long.

    You're right. They do look weird. Hayley's class had one with only one eye. Now that was weird.

  3. I can't believe you'd eat your pets.
