Hummingbirds Have Mops for Tongues

Have you seen the new video of a hummingbird drinking sugar water? All I can say is, "Wow!"

Using a special artificial flower and a high speed camera, researchers have been able to record some incredible shots.

Look at that tongue, it is acting like a mop.

For more about the video, see this report at Wired magazine.

Hummingbirds use these incredible tongues to catch small flying insects, as well.
