Vision of the honeybee Apis mellifera for patterns with two pairs of equal orthogonal bars
Tests were made of the discrimination by flying bees of black and white patterns that subtend 40° from the point of choice by the bees. The patterns are composed of two pairs of bars at right angles to each other. Bees cannot distinguish the patterns from themselves rotated by 45° or any multiple of 45°. Examples are a cross, a square, a spiral and an irregular pattern by 90 or 180° when the positive pattern is bilaterally symmetrical about a vertical line. Yet these patterns can all be...[Show more]
