Examples of iridescence from the fall fair

I caught these two beauties showing off their iridescent plumage at the fall fair. It always amazes me that such a range of colours can be produced from an optical trick.


  1. What kind of duck is that?

  2. I didn't recognize the duck either, so I photographed it's sign. It's listed as an East Indie Bantam Duck. There is more info on them here: http://www.feathersite.com/Poultry/Ducks/BkEast/BRKEastIndies.html
