I never saw a tan one before..usually they are the palest green to white..but it sure looks like a pale beauty.
Pale Beauty - Campaea perlata

It looked more white
In the sunshine it looked very white to my eyes, but the photos made it look more tan colored. I wasn't sure if my eyes were just thinking it was white or if the camera captured it more accurately than I saw it. I was surprised when I uploaded them.
