Snapple Real Fact #133

Honeybees navigate by using the sun as a compass.

What do they do when it's overcast, navigate by the brightness level? How about the other types of bees?

Does it guide them visually? Or are they sensitive to the direction the heat is coming from, and the sensation acts as their compass?

If these are stupid questions, just ignore me. I am drunk.

Yes. Actually, I'm drunk 90% of the time.
