The color of the sky and the ocean merging at the horizon in the late afternoon

It ends up the common teal (a type of duck the color was named for) not very teal at all, mostly browns and tans sans a few iridescent strips. give it a pair of hazel eyes and its all a quack.

I went to Robert E. Lee Park today and sat by the water for a long time. I'm thinking about how everwhere I have traveled I have been close to a large body of water. And when I feel like i have'nt been near some natural source of water for awhile I feel parched and drained. blues/teals/greens/all the colors of water are filling.

I conducted a mini survey today. The question: What color are my eyes?

In bright natural light a classmate told me grey

Sitting on my fire engine red sheets my roommate thought they looked particularly blue.

In a brown room of a friends place a group of people I've never met decided on green

Hazel was a popular answer but I always felt it was so vague, hazel specifically in eyes can range from a deep golden brown to eyes with majority blues and greens with just hints of brown and golden hues

Teal is a medium blue-green color. It is named after the common teal, a member of the duck family, whose eyes are surrounded by the color. The complementary color of teal is coral pink.

It comes from a mixture of the primary color, blue, and the secondary color green, mixed with some gray.

The first recorded use of Teal as a color name in English was in 1917.

I realize I must look very vain the last few days staring deep into my own eyes in the mirror every time the light changes or I'm standing in front of a brightly colored background. While people may suspect I'm checking my make-up or have something in my eye really I'm examining were the flecks of gold near my pupil begin to meet both muted and vibrant intermingling blues and greens or that ring of deep navy blues and greys surrounding my iris.
