Dancing Queen

Cartoon 255When bees find a good source of nectar they tell other foragers how to find it by doing a waggle dance.

Some plants lace their nectar with a dose of caffeine which causes the bees to dance more enthusiastically and recruit even more foragers.

I liked the idea of a couple of boring drones leaning against the bar watching the girls dancing around a little too enthusiastically after having a few too many espressos.
