A Riot of Colour!

Challenge #115 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
Here's your chance to show us nature at its most flamboyant and colourful best. Sometimes we see trees, flowers, birds, insects, rocks etc in such bright colours that they surprise and disturb our senses. Your entries can be these discordant colours, or they can just be very vivid and bright. But let NATURE take centre-stage, NOT your saturated post-processing. (If entries look unrealistic because of the post-processing, they will be disqualified.) Please, NO sunrises, sunsets or rainbows, as the colours are too transient, and the subjects too easy. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size of entry, 1,600px on its longer side.
