I keep two water bowls out in the back garden for the birds to drink from. We get a variety of birds visiting and sometimes I manage to get a few photos if I'm patient and quiet.
We've had a few Crescent Honeyeaters visiting us lately, one day there were about nine of them perched on the edges of the dish in the photo above. They were all taking turns dipping in and out of the water, they move swiftly so it can be hard to get a decent photo. (to hear what they sound like click here)
These photos were taken early evening on one of the really hot days, I've never seen a lorikeet drinking before, he chased off the other birds when he came down.
