white throated honeyeater, Melithreptus algogularis, at garden bird bath

White throated honeyeater Melithreptus albogularis IMG 8910A - This bird and its mates are attracted to water and each day they spend a considerable amount of time bathing. The bird in this image had been taking a dip in a pool in the photographer's sub-tropical garden, and on a summer's day when the temperature was well in excess of 40 degrees Celsius, it was in no hurry to leave this relatively cool and shaded spot in the sub-tropical oasis that it calls home throughout the year.
