White hot: Miranda Kerr shows why she is one of the world's highest-earning models as she works a bikini photoshoot on Sydney Harbour today
At first glance it appears as though Miranda Kerr was enjoying some rest and relaxation during a trip home to her native Australia.
But despite her soaking up the summer sun as she floats on Sydney Harbour, the supermodel was in fact hard at work.
Miranda, 27, was steaming up the cameras during a photoshoot for UK Vogue magazine on Monday.

The Victoria's Secret Angel knows a thing or two about working skimpy lingerie, and it was no different as she reclined on a small speedboat in a white bikini.
Miranda luxuriously stretched herself out along the stern of the vessel, aptly named La Dolce Vita.
She shaded her eyes in a pair of aviator sunglasses as the driver sped around the harbour in the sunshine.

Miranda protected herself from the breeze with a cover-up in between shots, and later slipped into a pretty sundress for another take.
Miss Kerr kept her followers on Twitter updated on her agenda that morning: tweeting 'Have a great day everyone! I'm off to work to shoot uk vogue xxx.'
The stunning brunette jetted Down Under last week with husband Orlando Bloom and baby Flynn in tow.

Tomorrow night the model will present an award at the Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts (AACTA) Awards in Sydney.
But her trip home hasn't been all work and no play. On Sunday Miranda was spotted arriving at trendy Sydney bar and restaurant The Winery with her mother Therese to join friends for a drink.
Even off-duty, Miranda looked like she had just stepped off a catwalk, showing off her enviably long legs in a white mini dress.
