Bee celestial navigation‏


Have you ever wondered how bees manage to tell the other bees where the best flowers are to make honey? It turns out they are very competent at using our closest star and the moon to tell the other bees (by fancy bee dance work) in what direction and distance the flowers are, they even outsmarted the professor while he was doing his bee experiment! So spare a thought next time you put honey in your tea
"It takes about 6 bees life work, and thousands of miles flown, to make one teaspoon of honey"
