Our eyes are designed to see green more than any other color. Perhaps evolution led us to this adaptation to distinguish our food or to avoid getting lost in forests and jungles. There are around 300 shades of green, but I think they can be endless since, in nature, the colors depend not only on the tonality they reflect but also on the quality and quantity of light. The golden, reddish, or pastel tones of sunrise and sunset transform leaves’ green colors.
