Photo Of The Day: Fish Ladders

Photo of the Day

This Photo of the Day comes from Gadling Flickr pool member James Wheeler who captured this image titled “Fish Ladders” in Cowichan Valley, British Columbia, CA, using a Nikon D5000.

James describes the image as, “Some fish ladders for the salmon to head up river for spawning on a river near Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island.”

Fish ladders give migrating fish a detour route so that they can get over or around a dam that’s blocking the way.

Tips for getting featured: in your Flickr account, check “Privacy and Permissions,” and check “yes” on “Allow others to share your stuff.” Adding information about your image does not hurt your chances either.
