Nature is full of so many wonderful phenomena and it never runs out of new things to offer. We never feel tired of seeing unique and mesmerizing pics of nature. Thanks to dedicated wildlife photographers who skillfully capture the perfect moments of nature, we get the chance to observe nature more closely. One of these moments is when Rahul Singh, a wildlife photographer based in Jalpaiguri, India, captured a rare moment of a bird taking a bath in a flower petal. Rahul loves to capture the breathtaking, rare moments of nature on his camera, and he’s especially interested in the local birds.
Rahul captures absolutely striking pictures of beautiful birds enjoying local flora.
Out of all the shots captured by Rahul, this set of pictures depicts an extremely rare behavior of birds. Last year, he visited a place with ornamental banana bushes to photograph sunbirds sucking nectar. However, what he witnessed was truly unexpected. On one banana flower petal which was filled with water, a little crimson sunbird was taking a bath. The tiny creature was refreshing itself in a pretty floral bathtub created by nature. Rahul quickly captured a series of amazing photos of the tiny bird bathing in the dew.
On his Instagram, Rahul explains how the Autumn in India is hot and humid, but the temperature is pleasant during the night. Dewdrops can be seen in the edges of the grass, flower petals, etc in the morning. Sometimes, water is even stored inside flower petals. Rahul also states that he was stunned by this unusual phenomenon, and therefore, he kept the shutter button of his camera pressed throughout the bird’s bath.
Rahul feels that how nature surprises us is truly amazing. His photos of the sunbird bathing in the flower petal took the internet by storm, and are one of his most popular photos. So, check them out and share your thoughts with us in the comments!
