Whoops a Daisy!

woops! 2

Whoops! Scientists have discovered that bees make a ‘whoops’ exclamation when they bump into each other by accident. Bees produce vibrations with their wing muscles and these are used to communicate within the hive. This particular vibration was thought to mean ‘stop’ or perhaps a request for food, but new research has proved this not to be the case. To read the full article and actually listen to bees whoopsing, go to the New Scientist website, it may be the cutest thing you hear all day.
