This Is How A Male Hummingbird Shows Off For The Ladies. It's Absolutely Stunning

July 30, 2015

This is an incredible closeup view of an adult male hummingbird showing off his beautiful iridescent feathers.

According to Lab of Ornithology: "This color show is made possible by the way the feather microstructure reflects light differently as the viewing angle changes. During his spectacular aerial courtship displays, he advertises this red badge to female spectators by orienting toward the sun. This colorful element of surprise is key to his mating success."
