This is a snow melt fed stream in Colorado, quite cold. I lay on a sandbar that jutted out into the stream and guessed as to how to frame the action. It was so cold you could not stay with your arms and hands in the water for very long but it was fun! There are two females here, one slightly above the other, surrounded by four males. It has been my experience when a pair of Grayling start to spawn, it attracts other males who want in on the action. At times, the late joiners disrupt the action.

The camera used was the Nikon AW1 with 10mm waterproof lens. The EXIF data did not have this selection available.

I love it!
In my opinion, we do not see nearly enough freshwater work that features our native gamefish species.
Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
Might I suggest that you add this image to your POTN gallery, so that more folks are likely to find it?
Also, do you have a website that we can visit to see a lot more of your underwater work?

Great stuff, Charlie!
I especially like IMG_5830; "Female Pink Salmon leaping out of the water".
