When it comes to using colour, the natural world is truly astounding. This article focuses on how animals use colour as camouflage.
Camouflage (KAM-oh-flahj) the act, means, or result of obscuring things to deceive.
(Day 5 into my 30 blogs in 30 days challenge!)
Did you know the human eye is able to differentiate more shades of green than any other colour? The belief behind this is one of evolution and survival when our early ancestors relied on being able to find food, water and life. We are reassured and feel safe when seeing green.
How do you feel when the sun is shining? Happy, spirits uplifted? So it will probably come as no surprise to you that yellow just happens to be the colour that represents happiness!

Orange is one of those love it or loath it colours. For me it always makes me smile.
When it comes to animals being able to change colour, seemingly at will, I just had to know more… what I’ve learnt is just amazing. A friend of mine, Akil Gordon-Beckford just happens to be one of the leading UK Aquarium designers. What he doesn’t know about seahorses isn’t worth knowing. Here’s the abridged version…
