The Awesome Honeybee Dance

Did you know how powerful the honeybee dance is? Watch the short video clips below.

Karl Ritter von Frisch won a Nobel prize for cracking the honeybees' communication code in 1973. It was discovered that these little insects have an awesome sense of time, distance and direction. Newer studies have also suggested that honeybees measure distances by the amount of optical information encountered during a flight. (The Journal of Experimental Biology 199, 155-162, 1996.) But their miraculous ability to communicate information about flower sources and calculate distances can only be fully explained by their Creator.
