Waggle Dance Flowers is a branch of Willoway Farm. First how about we discuss what is the "Waggle Dance". The honey gatherers of a honeybee colony perform a "dance" when in the hive to direct fellow workers where to find the best flower for pollen. The bee begins by wagging its body side to side and the amount of waggles tell the distance needed to travel. Then the honeybee turns moving in a semi circle back to start the waggle again then a turn for another semi circle. The dance essentially forms a figure 8. The turn designates how many degrees from the sun the flower sits in the field. So the Waggle Dance tells the direction to go to get to the best flowers as well as the distance.
