Photographer Captures A Tiny Bird Using A Flower Petal As Its Bathtub

For the past six years, Rahul Singh has photographed the wildlife around his home in Jalpaiguri, India. These include elephants, deer, jackals, monkeys and rhinos.

Last August, he captured a moment that left him stunned.

“I visited a place where there were bushes of these ornamental bananas to take photos of sunbirds sucking nectar from it,” Singh told The Dodo. “Everything was going as usual when, suddenly, I was shocked that the crimson sunbird started taking a bath in the water stored in the banana flower petal.”

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