Xanthophyll is the yellow pigments that brings many of the images on this page together: it is responsible for the egg-yolk yellow color in leaf pigments. Their structure is similar to carotenes, as in beta-carotenes, found in carrots, and responsible for the color orange.
This yellow is one of my favorite colors, much preferred to the lighter lemon yellow. I like that hint of orange.
