The male Rufous Hummingbird has spectacular, iridescent feathers. I just learned that a 2020 study in Evolution "shows that while hummingbird feathers have the same basic makeup as other birds', the special shape of their pigment-containing structures enables them to reflect a rainbow of light." These two photos were taken about 20 seconds apart.
