Things were ducky on St. Patrick's Day




On or about St. Patrick's Day, we visited Spanish Springs in The Villages. A large number of people filled the town square for the usual evening concert. The Villages, being a fun place, dyed the waters surrounding the square a St. Patrick green.

They even brought in some Mallard ducks.

Or did they?

Are they real or is this another Disneyesque creation?

They do look real, but do you think they came out of there with the white feathers green?!

So, Ms. Cieldequimper - are they real or not? This is Disneyland for adults you know...

Thanks to all of your for your comments! The ducks, however, are in fact a "Disneyesque" creation. What you see is not necessarily what you get.

They sure look real, even when standing relatively close to them...and they move realistically through the water.

But they are not. They are faux ducks! Ciel got it right - the eyes have it!
