Excellent shot of the breeding display and the nuptial plumage, or "aigrettes"!
And as most people know, those plumes almost caused these birds to become extinct in the early 1900's due to the demand from the women's hat trade. The National Audubon Society was originally formed to protect this species and their logo today is still the Great Egret.
I too like the turquoise colour that their lores become.
