Christian Spencer Photographs Hummingbird with Rainbow in Its Wings

Australian photographer Christian Spencer, who lives in Brazil took these beautiful photos of a hummingbird that looks like its wings are made of a rainbow. It took patience, skill, and some luck, but he managed to take many shots of a bird with light diffracting through its wings, making them look colorful and magical.

We learn on his website that “Since a young age Christian Spencer was always interested in nature and indigenous cultures. He started painting professionally in 1996 in Adelaide. In 1998 he moved to a sheep station in an isolated farm in the heart of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia to work and paint.”
