Herons and egrets are beautiful birds with their long, elegant lines. We spied the Great Egret’s white feathers from the road for a photo opp. It wasn’t until the photos were downloaded that we saw the Great Blue.  An earlier attempt to capture the Great Blue failed when the closeness of our car made him nervous and off he flew.

BLUE,WHITE and GREEN -- A Great Egret's white plumage stands in stark contrast to the camouflaged Great Blue Heron to its left. The two were spotted in the Dagmar National Wildlife Refuge in eastern Arkansas.
ALONE -- Great egret stands by itself in the Dagmar NWR.
THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY -- Great Blue Heron is but a blur as he flees when the roadster inches too close to the water.
