Very interesting-thanks for sharing!

Robyn, thanks for sharing, as you can guess blue is my favorite color.

Hi, blue is my favourite colour and as I live at the seaside it is the element I most benefit from, also considering that water is the greatest oxygen source due to phytoplankton. Wonderful blue animals, butterflies, birds and flowers it is a concert in blue

Fascinating Robyn really enjoyed your blog 🙏🏻 It certainly is a favorite of mine and of course all the birds and flowers I have seen that are blue are top of my list as far as fauna and flora go. Thanks ❤️

That was so interesting – thank you!

That is interesting……….. if blue depends on the way we can see, and we know that animals have different build up in their eyes, it might well be that they see the world around them completely different! Perhaps they see everything blue, or not at all. Or what we call blue, is for them a completely different colour. Any idea if their has been research for this? I know that blue is a colour dogs can see, but then: do they see blue?

Thanks Robyn for your interesting story on the colour blue and pigments and organisms. We have learnt something new today.

An interesting blog and love all the pics. Really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing.

Nice change of subject from simply animal sighting. Your blogs are always refreshingly unique. Good job, keep it up!
