Well, I didn’t get as much written this weekend as I’d hoped, but on the plus side I’m at 12 of 100 squares of my afghan and one of my husband’s best friends was in town and bought us an AMAZING fancy dinner as a belated wedding present
So that’s pretty cool

From The Beekeeper’s Bible:
What is most astonishing about this dance is that it not only alerts other bees to a new forage source, it also tells them in which direction to fly, how far to fly, and what to expect when they get there. The figure-eight dances are not always oriented in the same direction on the comb; the central straight-line waggle part of the dance gives the direction to the other bees. The angle between the waggle path and the vertical axis of the comb is the same as the angle between the forage source and the sun’s position above the horizon (the azimuth). On leaving the hive, the bees fly at this angle from the sun to find the new forage source. In addition, the length of the central waggle path is an indicator of how far away the source may be. Bees are now thought to judge distance by measuring the movement of the environment past their eyes (optic flow) and to use this to compensate for wind speed, because flying with the wind will take less time than flying into the wind. Waggles are correspondingly shorter or longer. Finally, the richness of the forage source is indicated by the apparent fervor with which the scout vibrates its abdomen during the waggle.
