Clever bees

I suppose this really belongs on the bee blog, but anyway... from Science: honeybees, who have 0.01% of the neurons that humans do, can recognize and remember individual human faces (thanks to JF for the tip).

Tell me about it...

I used to worry about looking at my bees, which are 50 from a Devon lane. But people walk by unbothered and oblivous to the buzzing masses around me.

Of course, if you can spot and correctly describe that the honey room door is ajar 1000 metres away at 271 degress and get 1, 000's of others there within minutes then something's afoot between them twitching antennae :) !
