Breathtaking photos: Eagles and salmon migrate in B.C.

    1 of 19 2 of 19

      Only a few hours away from B.C.'s largest city lies one of the largest migrations on the West Coast. Each year, thousands of salmon battle the river in order to reach their spawning grounds.

      Local photographer Martin Gregus Jr. spent his winter with the eagles and the salmon, fully equipped with underwater and remote cameras, capturing the wildlife in a different way. In search of the perfect shot, trekking deep into the heart of a delta, hiking though waist-deep grass, traversing a landscape of channels, it proved easier to just follow the trails created by the bears and the wolves that frequent the area.

      The shooting of “Where Eagles Dare” proved to be one of the most amazing experiences that Gregus has ever had and will be sure to continue again come autumn.

      does anyone know what's going on with the salmon's skin in the 7th image?

      It is slowly disintegrating, essentially, a natural process that occurs at the end of the salmon-spawning cycle when the fish die after procreating.
