Round dance (honey bee)
Round dance is a term used in bee keeping, entomology and communication of social insects. It describes a specific communicative behavior of honey bees inside the bee hive. When a forager, or scout bee, returns to the hive she performs a round dance to communicate the location of food sources close to the colony (less than 35 yards away). The bee moves in a circular pattern.
