“Colors are the smiles of nature,” wrote poet Leigh Hunt.
Toco toucans with bright orange bills (right), fuchsia-feathered flamingos, green flying frogs, and lions with fur of gold are just a few of the animals that wear color well.
For this assignment, share some happiness with your most vibrant photos of color in nature.
