“Spiderhunters have long tubular tongues used to suck nectar into the mouth.
“The above image shows a Streaked Spiderhunter (Arachnothera magna musarum) using its long tongue to explore for insects, possibly spiders – note the faint spider webs in the image.
“There was a pair foraging together and their camouflage was excellent when they were in pine trees (above).”
