Without question, we all adore discovering new and exquisite natural images. Only the finest professional photographers can capture the exact moment that lets us get closer to nature. They do it by capturing photographs precisely at the appropriate time.

Recently, one such photographer captured a stunning picture of a bird soaking in a blossom petal. Literally a once-in-a-lifetime sight.

This snap was captured in the camera of a photographer named Rahul Singh from Jalpaiguri, India. Rahul enjoys capturing the wonderful life of wild creatures, especially birds.

Shots of birds of different shapes, sizes, and shades flood Singh’s Instagram account, @rahulsinghclicks.
The most spectacular images, however, frequently include birds savoring the native flora and wildflowers.

Upon seeing an unusual, uncommon bird interaction, he took one of his most unforgettable images.

When the Dodo interviewed him, he said, “I went to an area with an abundance of bushes of these beautiful bananas to snap pictures of sunbirds drinking honey from them.

“Everything seemed normal until, out of the blue, I was startled to see the red sunbird soaking up some water in the plantain blossom petal,” he added.

In this photograph from the same collection, a female Crimson Sunbird can be seen cooling down in a flowery bathtub that the environment has provided for her by collecting rainwater in a plantain flower’s bloom. The bird can be seen posing for this specific photograph by sticking her beak inside the blossom.

After being startled, he promptly snapped several pictures of the Sunbird bathing in the rainwater. The moment was “as if mother nature constructs a flowery pool for her,” Rahul remarked.

The Sunbird unmistakably appears to be having fun. In his Instagram account, Rahul wrote that the birds probably need some chilling on a scorching day.

Singh said, “The autumn evenings in India are lovely, but it is hot and muggy in the afternoon. Dew droplets are visible on the edges of grasses and blossoms in the mornings, and blossom petals occasionally contain water”.

The photographer snapped many pictures. He knew it was a unique occasion since he had never seen a similar thing.

Singh told The Dodo that he was astonished to observe this unique conduct. He continued to push the shutter button on his Nikon as the bird showered.

Due to their recent internet success, the red Sunbird’s bath pictures are now Singh’s most famous Instagram posts.

So it demonstrates how nature can astonish and stun us if we only take a moment to observe the blooms.

Singh remarked that the occasion was indeed a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Nature may surprise us in such unexpected ways.
