Egret/heron - Columbia County, Florida (1 Viewer)

Saw this which I assumed was a great white egret but it seems to have dark tips to primaries. Can anyone confirm or is it a trick of the light?

It also seems to have pale bill with a dark tip = Little Blue Heron?


Edit: and what about the yellowish that can be seen on both feet and where the legs meet the body?

Thanks folks - little blue heron was my other thought but as I've never seen one before I was unsure.
