With Mardi Gras starting, we can take a cue from nature about costumes. The plumes of this Great Egret — a.k.a. White Heron — make for stunning, swooshing ball-room trail effects quite useful in courtship to show just how magnificent a bird is to prospective mates.

Herons have a metro-sexual approach to clothing as both male and females enjoy the occasional shake of plumage, something similar to a flick of the gown to show a glimpse of leg.
