    #mutualism   
    Biologists call this kind of arrangement "mutualism". The flower gets to spread its genes, and the worker bee gets a sugary drink and packs her knees with golden protein-rich pollen to take back to the thousands of hungry mouths back at the hive.

    #compound eyes   
    Not only do they see the world through these compound eyes made of thousands of individual pixels, they see a world bathed in ultraviolet. Way beyond what our eyes can see.

    #How a bee sees a flower   
    We see this. And they see THIS. How a bee sees a flower.

    #bees can sense a flower's electric field   
    Now the relationship between flowers and bees goes way beyond the visual. Scientists from the University of Bristol recently discovered that bees can sense a flower's electric field.

    #if another worker has already visited that flower   
    This helps pollen jump from the flower to the bee like electric velcro. It also helps the bee figure out if another worker has already visited that flower and slurped up all the goodness.

How Bees Can See the Invisible

Bees see the world in some very interesting ways Click here to SUBSCRIBE, it's FREE! -- http://bit.ly/iotbs_sub ↓ More below ↓ To begin this video, we launched a little confetti to celebrate the fact that I am now "Dr. Joe", since I successfully defended my Ph.D. in molecular biology! Woo! But you don't have to call me "Doctor." Anyway, spring is in the air!! We're all thawing out from winter's chill, and for bees and flowers this season is about one thing: Feeding and fertilizing. Bees are amazing social insects, and their relationship with flowers is one of nature's coolest examples of "mutualism". It got me wondering: How do bees see the world? Enjoy this look at how bees see in ultraviolet and even sense electric fields!
