Brendhan, ooooh, you do get the most interesting links to us!!!  Yea, good for you!!!!

I liked this part from the article:

Bees can also see into the ultraviolet. Some flowers that look yellow or white to us appear purple or blue-green to them. Bee flowers often have nectar guides - petal marks pointing to anthers and pistils, like arrows on a runway - that are invisible to humans, but clear as day to a bee. Although hummingbirds and some flower-visiting bats have UV vision, "their" flowers lack such signals. Bird flowers are also less likely to be scented, since most birds lack a well-developed sense of smell.

I wonder how a human can get "bees' eyes", hee, hee, I would love to see those markings on the petals that point to the nectaries....have a beautiful and wonderful day, love our life we live.  Cindi
