On Wings and Light

Hummingbirds occupy that rare place where tenacity, beauty, grace and mysticism collaborate to create something extraordinary.  Australian photographer Christian Spencer has used his camera to capture all of that in a new manner.  A longtime resident of Brazil’s Itatiaia National Park for nearly two decades, Spencer has photographed many of the region’s natural wonders, including hummingbirds.  Recently, he discovered a unique way to combine his love for the birds with sunlight.  In a series entitled ‘Winged Prism’, Spencer photographed light filtered through the wings and tail of a black and white Jacobi hummingbird.  In a Photo Shoppe world, this is truly unique and breathtaking.
