Importance of a Common Background
and a transparent color guide.
This month I have chosen an Adelson type illusion that uses the
yellow-red colors of beer and the blue colors used to evaluate "beer color".
You have probably surmised that I am going to tell you that these birds are
of identical color - and this is true! If you have a color "picker" or
"chooser" on your computer drag it over the image and "see" for yourself.
Otherwise block out the background using a piece of paper with small holes
in it and see that the two peahens are the same.
