Hummingbirds are small, delicate colorful birds with iridescent feathers. Their name comes from the fact that flap their wings so fast (about 80 times per second) that they make a humming noise.
These fluttery symbols of beauty have a particularly stunning quality that you may not have seen before. The Anna’s Hummingbird has iridescent feathers that appear to change colors before your very eyes!
It’s not magic, but rather a trick of the light. As the bird ruffles its feathers and tilt its head, light reflects off of his feathers and bounces away in different directions. The optical illusion makes it seem as though the feathers themselves change color and it’s truly amazing to watch.
Enjoy, and please SHARE the beauty!
