The idea that we don't share the same descriptions of colors has led biologists to develop color comparison charts. Robert Ridgway's color standards for bird identification might save my marriage. Barb and I are always arguing over what is blue or green. Perhaps you have a similar spousal story- if so, spare me as I have enough trouble correcting my wife.

Addendum: Matt reports that it formed a chrysalis. I was afraid after its dog-gone experience it would be "too pooped to pupate."
