Bees Don't Need Maps!

I love maps. I may even be a "maphead" - and in fact am reading a book by that very title by Ken Jennings (Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks). Bees, apparently, don't need maps - though they do use landmarks. Instead, they do some back-of-the-antennae figuring that optimizes their routes. You can read about it here.
