It would, however, be an error to sup
pose that all tho requisite metallic
shades which diaper the feathers of
birds and the wings of butterflies arise
from pigments ; it was a dream of the
alchemists to try to extract them.
Their sole cause is the play of light,
fugitive as the sparkles of the diamond.
When the beautiful feathers on the
breast of the humming-bird are exam
ined under the microscope, it is aston
ishing to see none of the shades the
mystery of which you would pene
trate. They are simply made of a
dark brown opaque substance not un
like those of a black duck. There is,
however, a remarkable arrangement.
1'he barb of the feather, instead of be
ing a fringed stem, offers a series of
small squares of horny substance placed
point to point. These plates, of in
finitesimal size, are extremely thin,
brown, and to all appearance, exactly
alike, whatever be the reflection they
give. The brilliant large feathers of
the peacock are the same ; the plates
are only at a greater distance, and of
less brightness.. They have been de
scribed as so many little mirrors, but
that comparison is not correct, for then
they would only give back light with
out coloring it. Neither do they act
by decomposing the rays which pass
through them, for then they would
not lose their iris tints under the mi
croscope. It is to metals alone that
the metallic plumage of the humming
birds can be compared ; the effects of
the plates in a feather are like temper
ed steel or crystalized bismuth. Cer
tain specimens emit colors very varia
ble under different angles, the same
scarlet feather becoming, when turned
to ninety degrees, a beautiful emerald
