Bees and the waggle dance

Bees and the waggle dance: a figure eight series of movements that a scouting honey bee will make on its return to the hive.

By performing this dance, successful foragers can share with their hive mates information about the direction and distance to patches of flowers yielding nectar and pollen, to water sources, or to new housing locations…

Waggle dancing bees that have been in the hive for an extended time adjust the angles of their dances to accommodate the changing direction of the sun. Therefore, bees that follow the waggle run of the dance are still correctly led to the food source even though its angle relative to the sun has changed.

Amazing. Next: Watch more bee videos.

Thanks, Pete.
