National Geographic : 1990 Jan
The angle between the "waggle run" and the vertical represents the angle between a food source and the sun. In this scene three food sources are located at equal dis tance from a hive. For food at a 45-degree angle to the left of the sun, the bee arranges the waggle run at the center of the figure 8 at a 45-degree angle to the left of vertical (1). For food directly in line with the sun, the dance is straight up (2); for food 90 degrees to the right, the dance is at a 90-degree angle (3). The longer lasting the waggle run, the farther the food. For a distance of 250 meters, the run is half a second. electromagnet 00 . abo QO. p0on IDc osci, loscope computer PAINTINGBY RICHARDLEECH 139 sends be.
