Great Egret & Snowy Egret - Watercolor Painting

These two egrets look like buddies wading in the water together. Though they are similar, they are not the same. The one on the left is a Great Egret - it's a bit larger and has green at the eyes and a yellow bill. The one on the right is a Snowy Egret with a black bill and little flipped-up feathers at the tail. If its feet were out of the water, you'd see that they are bright yellow. I painted the water very smooth and still so that their reflections are clear and undisturbed, almost like looking in glass.
