5 Other Information in Waggle Dance Karl von Frisch’s experiments [48,49] already indicated that bees are able to perceive polarized light. Besides the sun, the bees use the polarization pattern of the sky to guide themselves better. For example, the bees can continue to recognize sun’s position after sunset or if it is obscured by mountains, etc. [49]. Other species like crayfish [99], spiders, ants, and octopuses can also detect polarized light. Apart from the direction, distance, and relative profitability of the food source, it is also hypothesized that the waggle dance of A.
