Image number: 2126383

The pygmy canopy honey. In a Marantaceae forest, the honey-hunters climb the lianas to harvest a bees nest that had been located in the night. The honey-hunters get up before dawn to inspect the traps but also to be able to locate in the silence the sound of the bees fanning. A branch is cut near the tree to mark their discovery. Likouala, Congo
