(Full Gallery Below)

Talented Australian photographer Christian Spencer has dedicated his life to capturing Brazilian wildlife. The 19 years he spent in Itatiaia National Park, Brazil, has resulted in a wonderful project titled ‘Winged Prism’.

Spencer believes there is beauty in taking a moment to notice the wildlife that is around you. This is when he first noticed the rainbow prisms that a hummingbird creates.

He then set out on the difficult task of capturing the small birds who fly up to 55kph (35mph), while facing the sun.

Hummingbirds flapping their wings 80 times per second also contributed to the difficulty of this task.

Spencer had to capture the exact moment the sun penetrated the hummingbirds’ wings in order to capture this beautiful prism.

The result of his work is stunning. The photos are fully organic, and no digital manipulation is used

You can find the full collection and more of Spencer’s work on his website and Instagram. You can also purchase the print for yourself.

This is not the first time Spencer captured this prism. In 2011 he filmed the award-winning ‘The Dance Of Time’ film.

But the hummingbirds are so beautiful he had to go back and film them again. Beautiful.
