Great Blue Heron with fish

Great Blue Heron with fish

And the answer, he left the meal in the grass after trying for about 10 minutes. Plainfield, IL. - View large on blackI watched him fish for about half an hour before catching this lunker. When he tilted his head like he was ready to lunge I snapped a picture and got the dreaded "Full CF". I was deleting photos while he caught and flew this fish to shore...amateur mistake. But I got this one photo with the head and fish in the clear.Any fish experts out there? Common Carp? Buffalo Sucker?
