These Photos Show What a Peacock Feather Looks Like Up Close

Peacock feathers are designed to dazzle and attract a mate, but they’re equally amazing when viewed from up close. Canadian photographer Waldo Nell photographed one through a microscope, and the resulting photos look like colorful abstract art.

Nell shot the photos through an Olympus BX 53 microscope and a Canon Rebel T3i DSLR. Each image is composed of hundreds of photos that were stacked and blended to create single images with higher resolution and greater depth of field.

Nell works as a software engineer, but he’s also an “avid photographer interested in the extraordinary.”

You can find more of Nell’s work on Flickr and on 500px.
