These Magical Pictures Of Hummingbirds’ Wings Shining Like Rainbows

No matter how advanced technology gets, nature never stops to amaze and surprise us.

Australian artist and photographer Christian Spencer has been interested in nature and indigenous cultures since he was young.

He was spending the day on his verandah in Rio de Janeiro when he noticed something wonderful. The sun striking the wings of a Jacobin hummingbird, producing a beautiful light prism effect. At that moment, it looked as if the small birdy was a tiny flying rainbow.

In 2011, he captured the perfect moment of the sun illuminating a black Jacobin hummingbird when it created a prism effect that colored the bird’s body like a rainbow. His work was included in his short film, The Dance of Time, and received 10 international awards and three best film honors.

His latest artwork called “Winged Prism” won a prize at the Museum of Modern Art in Resende RJ Brazil, and reveals “a secret of nature that cannot be seen with our eyes.”

He said that he didn’t use any digital manipulation while creating the series, “There is no special technique, just diffraction of light through the wings of this special hummingbird. 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.

Sea Turtles Get Rescued From Unnecessary Suffering

As you may know, barnacles are some sort of crustacean that usually fix themselves to rigid surfaces as rocks or even ships. Yet, sometimes they can attach to the sea turtles shell. Although one single barnacle doesn’t particularly cause any sort of damage, if the barnacles number found on a turtle’s shell is too high, that could turn into real struggles for the hopeless marine creature. Swimming difficulties, infections and even poor eyesight can be the result of these sticky crustacean.

And today we will focus on a random act of kindness, where a heroic guy from Sri Lanka, decides to help some poor sea turtles to dispose of a burden that could eventually cost their lives. The helpful man, called Chika Boy is great fond of wildlife and always willing to step up for the hopeless animals. This time, he removes the barnacles from the turtle’s shell!

So, in his latest YouTube video, Chika Boy shows us the easiest way to help a sea turtle to get rid of those unpleasant guests. You can see how many barnacles attached themselves to this tiny sea turtle. Fortunately, this nice guy removes them all using a special tool. Then, with its shell clean, Chika Boy releases the turtle back in the ocean.
