Nature never ceases to amaze us. We are still discovering new beauts in nature. The photographer who happened to capture these beautiful pictures is Christian Spencer. He was spending his day on his verandah in Rio de Janeiro when suddenly he noticed an eye-catching image. He noticed how the sun striking its rays through the wings of a Jacobin hummingbird and how it produced an array of colors that looks like a rainbow. He describes that it felt like he was looking through a beautiful light prism. It felt like the bird was carrying the rainbow in its wings as it flaps away in the air.
This snap portrays how the sun’s beam brings out the colorful prism effect on the wings of a black Jacobin.
“There is no special technique, just diffraction of light through the wings of this special hummingbird”
Spencer is a great photographer. He won over 10 international awards after capturing a beautiful bird’s movements for a film called The Dance of Time. Not only has he won over photography but he has won awards for three best honors.
But Spencer could not resist capturing more colored hummingbirds. So he told himself this;
“I decided to try and photograph the same phenomenon created by birds’ wings with my camera,” he told My Modern Met.
He was able to capture the most magical snaps ever that revealed, “a secret of nature that cannot be seen with our eyes.”
Spencer promises that he didn’t use any digital manipulation that would alter the magic of the bird “There is no special technique,” he explained, “just diffraction of light through the wings of these colorful birds.”
“Nobody ever could have ever dreamed that this was a reality. I receive emails every day from people across the world touched by these images.”
