Humming Bird Tongue

I took this last year in late summer at my sister’s mountain home. My sister is a hummingbird whisperer. I’ve never seen so many hummingbirds at one time at a feeder.

The same day I shot the above image, I also grabbed a slow motion sequence:

Did you know hummingbirds have tongues? I’d never seen one before.
