On Thursday, April 13, 2017, I, Bill, traveled to the infamous Alligator Farm in Saint Augustine, Florida alone as Deb was not able to accompany me on this 6 hours round-trip.
Of course, while there I photographed many wild birds nesting, building nests or flying around searching for food to feed their chicks, etc. Just unbelievable. This bird rookery is an absolutely amazing place to visit, especially if one is a wildlife bird photographer. Or any other type of wildlife photographer for that matter. Incredible place !!!
I captured this amazing great egret family scene with my Nikon D7200 camera plus my Sigma 600 mm lens. AS you can see the mother great egret is touching the beak of one of its two chicks while the other chick looks on. If anyone has an ounce of tenderness inside he/she for wildlife this has to be a tender-touching scene to view, which is why we titled it "Unconditional Love". Now for a few facts about this species.
The great egret (Ardea alba), also known as the common egret, large egret or (in the Old World) great white heron, is a large, widely distributed egret, with four subspecies found in Asia, Africa, the Americas, and southern Europe. Distributed across most of the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world. It builds tree nests in colonies close to water.
Like all egrets, it is a member of the heron family, Ardeidae. Traditionally classified with the storks in the Ciconiiformes, the Ardeidae are closer relatives of pelicans and belong in the Pelecaniformes instead. The great egret—unlike the typical egrets—does not belong to the genus Egretta but together with the great herons is today placed in Ardea. In the past, however, it was sometimes placed in Egretta or separated in a monotypic genus Casmerodius.
The Old World population is often referred to as the great white egret. This species is sometimes confused with the great white heron of the Caribbean, which is a white morph of the closely related great blue heron.
The scientific name comes from Latin ardea "heron", and alba, "white".
All visits to our FAA-Pixels art sites are welcomed, encouraged and appreciated. Please visit often and, if you will, tell your friends and family about our art sites. They may find something they like and thank you for the tip.
