Harmony of Colours in Nature

Challenge #110 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge show us examples where colours in nature harmonise together. I know that this is very subjective, but I'd like to see what colours YOU think are harmonious, and are pleasing in YOUR eyes. I'm not just referring to 'complementary colours' of red-green, yellow-violet etc., but I want to see pictures which you find pleasing to view, and perhaps tell us why. Preferences for colour harmony can depend on gender, race, country of origin, climate etc. (Bright colours in the tropics look very out of place in colder countries, and muted pastel shades are 'lost' in places with bright clear sunshine). The subject of your photo should, where possible, be outside in the natural environment. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size, 1,600px maximum on the entry's longer side. Later, I'll host a challenge: 'A Riot of Colour', where you can showcase those colours which are discordant to you, and excessively flamboyant in nature.
