Why most leaves are green?

I just wondering why most leaves are colored green?? I know that biological term about chlorophyl as the cause, but why green? why it is not blue or pink maybe?

The two people who have replied have put it nicely. Most leaves are green because most chlorophyll absorbs the the red and blue wavelength of the spectrum and reflect the green light. Colour doesn't have much impact. It is how much light you absorb that matters.

because they have chlorophyl in them which is a green coloured pigment.
