[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small honeyeater (Melithreptus lunatus) is widespread in the South-West of Western Australia and along the east Australian coast. The WA population is separated from their eastern counterparts by the Nullarbor and is recognised as a different sub-species (M.l. whitlocki) with a white eyebrow (ilustrated here). This individual was appreciating a quick bath during a hot autumn day.
