But is the 'egg' itself green?
For some reason, the chartruese/lime eggs seem to appear orange in our tannic stained water.
If you've ever shot negative(print) film, you've seen that green appears orange on the neg. Maybe salmonid eyes work backwards??? Or, the brown stain in the water filters out certain wavelengths & the green appears orange???
Just a thought...
