Shades of Pink in Nature

Challenge #177 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Pink, the colour somewhere between red and white, is an inviting, warm colour in nature's palette. History has linked it with love, beauty, femininity, sensitivity and romance. We see many shades and tones of pink in nature, from the palest pink of apple blossom, to the hot, hot pink of some birds, which almost hurts your eyes; leaves, salt lakes, rock crystals, birds or animals, shells and coral. Please think beyond sunrises or sunsets, they are just too easy. Man-made structures should be minimal. Please no humans, domestic pets or birds deprived of their freedom. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry: 1,600 pixels on its longer side.
