Wearing Of The Green

This would have been perfect for St Patrick's Day but it had passed when I took this pic at James Gardens. It's amazing how those green heads of the Mallards glowed in the sun!

Perfect shot for St. Paddy's Day, I agree. What an interesting and colourful shot! Those ducks seem to be unafraid of humans or perhaps they are attracted by the child's bright pink jacket!! What a fun photo!!

That would have been perfect. Those green feathers look like they are almost illuminated.

Wonderful!
Have a great week-end!

Their heads do seem to shimmer. Makes them stand out more to the lady ducks.

Andy said...

I agree with William. The shiny green is there to attract the lady ducks. ;)

Christine said...

Their shiny green heads are cool. Great capture with the woman and child feeding the ducks.
