Yea OK. I will agree with the yellow. It is a very bright yellow/orange that I have seen.

that the earliest stages of the rusting can give a very yellowish
coating, before the deep orange. You can see this in the Flickr photo
in Roger Hinman's link. I have used this color to lightly dust gondola
loads of "steel gray" sheet or structural shapes, and particularly to
rub on edges and corners, where the protective gray oxide tends to
break and permit rusting to start there first.
