This Great Blue Heron was on my daily 4-mile walk in a nearby park. I watched him search for crayfish until he caught this one.

hello Carl

Welcome to TN community. Your 4th post here is followed by great capture of this heron. I am sure with your daily 4mile walk, you will be filling up your gallery in no time with plenty of interesting wildlife photos using your Tamron lens, it will be quite a walk with body/lens weight of 2kg? I can see the clarity and sharpness in this shot of the heron and your timing was great to show the catch in red. Although the grass may appear to distract a bit, the reflection on water actually helps to provide a nice outline of the bird's body. Great work and walk from the park.

tfs, bill
