Yellow bellied sunbird drinking by Vedwati Padwal

"The temperature is very high during summer months in India, and water is scarce day by day," photographer Vedwati Padwal writes. "Birds have difficulty finding natural water sources; hence they became attracted to water taps." Padwal found this yellow-bellied sunbird drinking in Gir National Park. He used a Nikon D300 and a 70-300mm lens.
