Caption: Bee flight simulator. Honeybee (Apis mellifera) tethered in a flight simulator. The panel of green light-emitting diodes (LEDs) produces a 'virtual world' in which the bee can navigate. It is presented with visual and olfactory stimuli, and its responses are measured according to the forces it exerts on the mount. Honeybees are economically important as pollinators of many of the world's crops. Photographed at the University of Ulm, Germany in 2003.
