And then there were two!

There appears to have been some winnowing of the Minions. The others may have been victims of hungry cows.

While driving on Highway 17B near the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts I saw this amazing display. I had to stop and take a photo. It was for a tire store, I believe, but I'm not exactly sure where it was located. I love how they used the hay bales as the bodies and tires for their eyes. I had my two sisters with me so we all enjoyed seeing it.
