Bees can find the most efficient route between flowers faster than a supercomputer can.

Bees navigate by recognizing patterns and symmetry, and although they have very small brains, they are one of the most efficient species in terms of navigation, scientists have found. In fact, research shows that bees are better than even supercomputers at finding the shortest route between many flowers without visiting the same flower twice.
The problem-solving abilityof bees is thought to be because of the bees’ need to preserve as much
energy as possible to find food and make their way home.

More about bees:
Honey bees might fly as far as 6 miles (9.7 km) away from their hives to find food.

Other than humans, bees are thought to be the only species that communicates with symbolic language or about things that are not present at the time. Bees use “dances” to communicate with one another.

Bees have three sets of eyes and are able to sense movements that are one-300th of a second apart, or the equivalent of individual a single frame of film during a movie.
