Great Blue Herring eating a Herring

As I was counting herring making their annual migration this Great Blue Herring showed up for breakfast. This is the second year herring have made it to this location after 150 years of being blocked by dams. With the help of fish ladders the fish have returned from the ocean to spawn.
