Hummingbird tongues are at least twice as long as their long beaks. They have to be so they can get nectar from the tubular flowers they prefer. I never had a shot of this until today.

Look carefully and you can see the beak slightly open so he (it’s a red throat) can stick his tongue out.

I’m guessing he’s a juvenile male — b/c he’s sticking his tongue out right? Just kidding!!!!!
