Hummingbird’s Feathers Are Iridescent.

This bird is gorgeous.

Via All About Birds

Structural Colors

Adding to the diversity of avian colors are colors produced by the structure of the feather. The best known example is the gorget (throat feathers) of many hummingbird species. The iridescent colors of the gorget are the result of the refraction of incident light caused by the microscopic structure of the feathers. The refraction works like a prism, splitting the light into rich, component colors. At certain angles little or no light is reflected back to the viewer and the gorget can appear black. As the viewing angle changes, the refracted light becomes visible in a glowing, shimmering iridescent display.

NFL Philadelphia Eagles 33, Washington Redskins 27, Chip Kelly, Coach of the Decade.

Great Monday Night Football to be a Philadelphia Eagles Fan.

After watching the fist half, I wish I was an offense lineman’s wife again.. Really, that is where the game is won at the line of scrimmage. I am viewing some of the big men pulling, beautiful screens.  The team that controls it wins the game.  Wow factor in place. Chip Kelly has caught the defense in disarray with his multiple O formations. Also, I believe lots of those cramps in the legs of the Skins defense were really time outs.  Yes, it is that quick. The Birds look like they have been training in a spin room pre- season. ( Like I have for the past 8 months.) Vick looks great and Kelly is brilliant.  All the teams in the NFL will be dissecting this game tape.

Can’t wait for the second half. BTW, RG3 looks like he is still injured ACL and all. His Otho Dr.on sidelines. .Bids 26-7 Skins.  ( Philly gave the Skins the 7 pts.)

Michael Vick runs it in for a touchdown 33-7.  RG3 now fist time in the red zone.  Philly sacked QB blitz. Randy Moss can’t save them. Horsecoller cheap shot and more.  Yes, thee should have been two penalties.  #10 was on fire and pissed. They will go for three,  Attempted field goal no good. Go Birds. 

Just watched Peters,, the Bids All- Pro Left Tackle. Took two with him as the RB ran around him. Oh the refs are homers One looks like he should be retired and watching the game from his rocker.

It is the 4th quarter now.  Birds are celebrating a bit early.  It is OK.

Oh what a feeling to be a Philly Eagle’s Fan again.  Superbowl is just up the Pike in Jersey too.

R.I.P. The Any Reid era is officially Dead. Praise the Lord.
