Color Palettes from Nature

I’ve been working on a project for a client that involves looking at a lot of photos of birds (really, I never thought I’d be one of those animal people on the internet but hey, at least it’s not LOL cats…)

I have been struck by some of the beauty of the color combinations I’ve been seeing and have been itching to create color palettes from a few of my favorites. Key findings: Nature is not always as subtle as I once thought. Lighting and mood mater. Enjoy.
