Rotarians for Bees - the Waggle dance
Let's do the Waggle Dance!
Did you know that bees have a special 'figure of eight' dance that is done by the honey bee in its hive. By this, a worker tells the others where it has found nectar. It is done to give other bees information about the direction and distance to flowers that have nectar or pollen or both.
