Light shining through hummingbird wings

Photographer Christian Spencer shot these pictures of jacobin hummingbirds from his verandah in Rio de Janeiro.  The translucent wings act as a kind of prism that turns each bird into a tiny rainbow.

Spencer said he did not do any digital manipulation of the photos.  He just used natural light.
