New Holland honeyeater, Phylidonyris novaehollandiae.

"Honeyeaters are especially vulnerable when sipping nectar from large, tubular flowers. This New Holland honeyeater was heavily dusted with pollen from the flowers it had visited. I was amazed to capture the unique sunburst of pollen surrounding its head when it swiftly withdrew from the flax lily."
