Birds Best - pn

Everything I thought I knew about gorgets (the irridescent feathers around the male hummingbird's throat) is wrong. I thought the bird needed to face the sun for us to see the irridescence. Not true; on this completely overcast day (which provided a nice white backdrop; almost like I brought the bird into a studio with a light box) the colors still shine through; it turns out the hummingbird aims the colors at you.
