A photographer captures a tiny bird using a flower petal as a bathtub

Rahul Singh is a wildlife photographer and takes amazing pictures.

These include elephants, deer, jackals, monkeys and rhinos. As beautiful as these are, his true passion is capturing photos of the colorful birds he can find nesting in his hometown.

This is the moment that left him stunned.

“I visited a place where there were bushes of these ornamental bananas to take pictures of sunbirds sucking the nectar from them.”

“Everything was going on as usual when suddenly I was shocked that the purple sunbird started bathing in the water stored in the banana flower petal.”

The flower with red petals in these photos is called a banana flower, and it has collected water from the morning rain in one of its petals.

The tiny crimson sunbird, which only stretches up to 10cm in length, made the most of the opportunity to cool off on a hot day.

After filling up with nectar, the mini-singing bird cooled off in the “bath” of petals.

Rahul then posted the photos on his Instagram. He was clearly ecstatic that he was in the right place at the right time to capture this magical moment.

“This was truly a once in a lifetime moment,” said Rahul. “It’s amazing how nature can surprise us”
