Explanation:
Eu traduziria assim. Acho que não dá para por a flor no meio.

Many insect species are too small to see. In La Selva scientists are conducting studies of the hummingbird flower mite which is barely half a millimeter long. This tiny creature is so small it rides from flower to flower inside the nostrils of hummingbirds.
