  1. Wow, Tim. Thatโ€™s a new one for me! Also, beautiful images… ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Susan. You’ve seen how fast they fly and how erratic they are. It’s pretty much impossible to see their tongue without stopping the action with a camera.

  2. They look so funny, with their eager tongues!

    Bumble bees are specialists. Among all bumble bee species , those with long tongues seem to be be most in decline, because climate change puts deep-corolla flowers at a disadvantage.

  3. Wow Tim… amazing shots my friend! I have never seen their tongues. Thank you for sharing this and your skilled camera techniques to get these shots!
