: 1 2 3 4 5  >
We find such a variety of insects and birds with a diversity of metallic colours, in their plumage, wings or bodies. These colours amaze me time and time again and I do not think Ill ever get tired to look at these stunning creatures, as the metallic colouration just adds that extra glamour to any living thing what so ever. Please share this theme and add to the explosion of colour by ways of metallic.
