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.”
