This was the turning point in his life.
“I visited a place where there were bushes of these ornamental bananas to take photos of sunbirds sucking nectar from it.”
“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.”
The flower you see here is a banana blossom, and one of its petals has gathered morning dew, transforming it into a miniature bathtub.
When the little bird noticed the petal tub, she decided to take use of it. Dipping in the petal tub had to be very relaxing! After all, the nectar had just filled it completely.
It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Rahul. That was the first time he had ever seen anything like that. 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.”
The images were subsequently uploaded on Rahul’s Instagram account. “This was really a once-in-a-lifetime moment,” said Rahul. “It’s amazing how nature can surprise us.”
