I did not need to see the green to know I was looking at plants, as I recognized the growth patterns. There is MUCH more where this true color photo comes from. Unless you want to say that planet is packed with emeralds I suggest we dispense with any arguments on the point.

Well I think I need a lot more to be convinced you are looking at plant growth. For one thing, there doesn't appear to be anything in the foreground.

Of course it would be great, fantastic, amazing and all the rest if what you say were true.
