Wildlife photographer Rahul Singh has managed to capture an incredible image this time around.
Elephants, deer, jackals, monkeys, and rhinos are just a few of the exotic creatures he’s photographed. Isn’t this adorable? He’s captured this tiny bird bathing in a flower petal!
When he saw this, he was struck speechless.
“I visited a place where there were bushes of these ornamental bananas to take photos of sunbirds sucking nectar from it.”
That’s when I was surprised to see the crimson sunbird enjoying a bath in the water of a banana flower petal. “
The banana flower, which is what you see here, has gathered morning dew on one of its petals and transformed it into a miniature bathtub.
A small bird chose to take full advantage of the petal tub as soon as it noticed it. The petal tub must have been refreshing! After all, the nectar had only recently been consumed.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for Rahul. That was the first time he’d ever seen anything like that. And we hadn’t either!
“I was literally stunned to see this unusual behavior, I kept my camera’s shutter button pressed as the bird took her bath.”
Then, Rahul shared the images on Instagram. It was “a once in a lifetime experience,” stated Rahul. This is truly awe-inspiring how nature can shock us.
