Colors of the Animal Kingdom

Challenge #8 in the The natural world around you series. Hosted by Ohmyhi.
Challenge has finished
The idea of this challenge is to show the amazing colors of animals in their natural habitat. Whether it's the tiniest insect to the largest animals show off the colors of the natural world. There will be no zoo animals nor pets in this challenge. All animals must be in the wild and in their home, no humans in the photos, hands or feet. The main idea is to show how beautiful coat and skin colors are. Along with eyes, ears, etc. Animal must be identifiable in the photo so make sure the photo is far enough away that at least the whole face is visible.
