There was an interesting point made by an individual on the forum with regard to the dance.  the dance informs the bees of the location, etc., but it also allows the bees to "decide" on how much food to injest prior to their flight so they don't "run out of fuel" and can return home safely.  Now isn't that interesting.  Great day.  Cindi
