When the little bird saw the petal tub, Rahul decided to make use of it to capture the adorable pictures. Taking a swim in the tub full of petals must have been refreshing. Also, it had only recently finished sating itself on the nectar.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Rahul. That was the first time he had ever seen anything like that and had never seen it before. And We hadn’t either!

“l was so confused to see this wonder behavior that I continued pressing the shutter button on my camera as the bird bathed.”
