Prismatic Hummingbird

Hummingbirds flap their wings so fast that they appear to be a blur to the naked eye. We only see them fully in flight with the results of high-speed cameras. Photographer Christian Spencer not only caught a hummingbird in mid-flight, but in front of the sun. The sunlight is filtered through the black-and-white bird's feathers, scattering the colors of the spectrum.
