How cool is this


I am trying to devise ways in which to help youngsters and adults understand bees and have been trying to devise a simple experiment or two that can be done under classroom conditions.  I knew I needed to read up a little more about how bees see.  I was over the moon to find the link I am about to describe.  It includes crucial facts about bee sight – but more excitingly it has an interactive element.  To use it, click on one of the pictures, then move your mouse around that picture and on the right is a representation of what the bee sees.   There are limitation, but they are clearly explained.  Here is the link

Here’s an article that helps us understand other aspects of the bees sight – more to do with the ‘colour’ 

And more spectacular photographs illustrating the UV aspects

About apiarylandlord

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience. That is probably all you need to know until I work out how secure this blog is. Great fan of recycling - see ilovefreegle.org to find your local group. Save things from landfill. Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.
