In India, the Autumn days are hot and humid but the nights are pleasant. In the morning,  dew drops are found on the edge of grass, flower petals and sometimes water is stored in the flower petals.

Hi Mousam...

What a great moment you've captured here. Unique pose, great composition, and wonderful background. It doesn't get much better than that.

What a terrific photo and story. The Sunbird looks so relaxed that is is comfortable enough to be on it's back while bathing when they are at their most vulnerable. Really a well done action image where the action is relaxing.

I agree, an absolutely brilliant image, Mousam. This is very special, and something we do not see often.

How wonderful to see this! It is something out of a fairy tale to me- I would hardly believe that a bird would do this. Just magical.

I have never seen an avian image like this, extraordinarily unique and beautiful photo.
