Failing to Catch a Leaping Salmon

As the locks at Ballard transfer the water, they manage to catch a lot of salmon at the same time.  It was very common while we were there to see the salmon leap out of the water.  Some would leap out and crash back into the water on their sides while others would leap upright and nose back in to the water like a dolphin.  Catching this on the camera was a touch trickier.  I have a lot of shots of splashes as the salmon has just reentered the water.  I did get some on video though so you know I am not totally making this up!
