Caption: Honeybee (Apis mellifera) near center of frame performing a waggle dance. Waggling enables a bee to communicate to others the direction of a food source. The frequency of the waggles tells other bees the distance to the food source. The faster the waggling, the closer the source. Honeybees also communicate by touching antennae and by pheromone fanning.
