Anything about beesdancing and translation immediately brings to mind MST3K's take on the subject.

I'm awed by the patience and skill it must take to put a li'l dots of paint on individual bees.

This makes me wish my bees weren't in their winter cluster, so I could sit and watch 'em.

As a power wheelchair user, I often liken the waggly dancing I do at parties to bee dances anyway, so now I know how to include information on where to find the refreshments.
