A Palestine sunbird (also known as the northern orange-tufted sunbird) seeks nectar on a sunny day near the Sea of Galilee in Israel. “It took just a few seconds to take the picture, and I did it!” writes photographer Piotr Pabisiak on his entry to the Traveler Photo Contest. “This is an amazing bird.”
