9 Stunning Photos Of Hummingbirds By Photographer Christian Spencer

Published 2 months ago

Christian Spencer is an Australian artist and photographer who has been living in Rio de Janeiro since 2001. The artist says that throughout the years, Brazil’s nature and rich biodiversity have greatly influenced his artistic style, and ever since moving the country, he produced many amazing pieces of art that have been exhibited all over the world.

One day Christian noticed that the Jacobin hummingbirds flying around his verandah produced an interesting rainbow effect when the sun struck their wings at a certain angle. He decided to take some pictures and eventually turned them into a series he titled Winged Prism.

This wasn’t the artist’s first attempt at capturing these majestic little birds. Back in 2011, Christian released a film titled The Dance of Time where he captured the movement of hummingbirds’ wings. It ended up receiving 10 international awards and three best film honors but the project wasn’t over yet. A few years later, he decided to capture this unique phenomenon with his camera – and the results turned out absolutely stunning.

In an interview with My Modern Met, Christian said he doesn’t use any special techniques or filters when capturing photos of the hummingbirds.

The artist says he never could have dreamt that this was reality and that he receives emails every day from people who were touched by his images.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
