The Sockeye’s Glory – Mixed Media Collage

Each creature is made with unique strengths and weaknesses. And each is beautiful in its own way. This is a creature’s “glory.” I have to marvel at the way these fish leap back to their spawning grounds to perpetuate the cycle of life. To me, this is the glory of the Sockeye.
