Default What colors/mutations are my two birds?

Hi everyone!

Well, I never really thought about it before now but I have no idea what colors/mutations my 2 budgies are. I checked out CuteLittleBirdie's Color and Mutation guide but I'm still confused. Sprite, my green budgie is well..green. And Misty is a light blue. The only thing is, they are both very neon-ish. Can anyone help? Sorry if this is really simple, I'm just not good with this sort of thing.

This picture is the best I have showing both of their colors in natural light. Don't be confused by my signature, it doesn't show their true colors.

Ok, thanks! I knew it had to be something like that even though I was unsure.

No! Your guide was amazing! The best I've ever seen in fact! I quickly identified them as light green and light blue but they seemed a little neon-ish. I was just making sure.

It's amazing how bright their colors can be, isn't it? They have structural colors to their feathers, and they're iridescent. It's pretty much impossible to represent those colors on a computer screen.

I'm still mesmerized by my budgies' colors. I like taking their green or blue feathers and holding them up against the light. All the structural color disappears.

Your budgies are beautiful!

Aww, so cute and it looks like they're smiling at the camera too!
