The image of the single egret is an extreme crop (only 7% of the original image) of the main photo, done to allow closer inspection of the bird.
Also, since you can see the black legs in most of the shots, but not the yellow feet, I've included a tight crop of a not so good image of them flying away. You can clearly see the yellow feet on the bird on the left.
I thought that these two tight crops would aid in identification.
