Default AC Compressor oil. What color?

Friends,
What color is the oil that would leak out of an AC compressor?

Thanks. That is what I was afraid of. The leak I am seeing looks like it is coming from that general area but is the color of motor oil.

There is a green dye mixed in with the freon and oil to help find leaks in the AC system

not sure why there would be motor oil on that side unless you have a head leaking it, but thats really hard to believe.. could be power steering fluid.
