We are Such living Creatures on the Earth who are able to distinguish the colours very deeply, I mean if there is blue color then we see the blue color as dark blue, medium blue and sky blue but all living creatures don't able to do that. Dogs, horse are a kind of color blind animals who don't able to see much different colors, We should be thankful for god to give us such a vision that shows the color of beautiful world very deeply. Thank you God
