We forget so much because of the busyness of our daily lives. Sometimes we can not even see what is happening in our surroundings. So we lose the ability to experience the many beauties of the surroundings. But if we observe our surroundings well, we will be lucky enough to see many beautiful things in nature.
Christian Spencer is a photographer. Like many other photographers, he loved nature. The noisy ocean wave in nature, the beautiful flowers, the withered leaves are just some of the things he loved in nature. The need to show others the beauty of nature, which he saw made him a photographer.
One evening while relaxing on the porch in Rio de Janeiro, at sunset, he saw a Jacobian hummin bird flying in the sky. He saw that the sunlight falling through the bird’s wings showed a spectrum similar to that of a beam of light passing through a prism. It was a very beautiful and delightful sight. In fact, because of the colors of the light rays passing through the bird’s wings, that moment looked like a flying rainbow. Surprised by the scene, Christian immediately took action. He immediately photographed the scenes. we bring you, a series of photos that he took, for your enjoyment below.
Christian Spencer photographed various movements of birds in 2011 for the film Dance of Time.
Since then, his photographs have won 10 international awards and 3 Best Film Awards. But more photos of rainbow-colored hummingbirds are yet to come. Spencer reviewed the subject a few years later and told My Modern Met, “I decided to try and photograph the same phenomenon created by birds’ wings with my camera.” As an attempt at a collection of creative photographs with beams of light coming through the wings of birds, Winged Prism has been created. By that, he presents a series of beautiful photographs entitled “a secret of nature that cannot be seen with our eyes.”
He said that he did not use any special technology, in the design of the series and in the diffraction of light through the birds’ wings:
Christian Spencer captured a flying black Jacobin hummingbird as the sun’s light reflects off his wings. There, the bird’s body looked as colorful as a rainbow, like a creation from a prism cover. “There is no special technique, just diffraction of light through the wings of this special hummingbird”.Christian Spencer explained.
“Nobody ever could have dreamed that this was a reality. I receive emails every day from people across the world touched by these images.”
