New Paper on how bumblebees use flower patterns

We have love the fascinating range of colourful patterns that flowers display on our windowsills and gardens. Yet, they are not just beautiful, but also useful: our study revealed that flower patterns reduced the overall flower handling time from approach to departure by up to 30%. The patterns improved the bees’ foraging efficiency by guiding their approach flight, landing, and the decision to depart from the flower after feeding.
