2012, Day 132 - Drop of sunshine

I wonder why nature likes to pair certain colors...  As I took this picture that thought occurred to me.  Eggs come to mind but there is an extensive list of flowers in these paired colors; daffodils, daisies, roses, water lilies, day lilies, cala lilies, chrysanthemums, plumeria, and dahlias to name a few.  I suspect it has something to do with the way insects perceive color and pollination.  Regardless of the reason the contrast is quite attractive.
