UV patterns of bees' vision

chttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=%22How+bees+discriminate+a+pattern+of+two+colors+from+its+mirror+image%22.+Plos+One+Journal

I came across this paper the other day that was written more than 25 years ago about how bees are able to discriminate between two different colors and how being able to see UV patterns is essential for their survival. It's a pretty old paper (published in 1989) but it's very interesting. I definitely recommend you taking a look at it if you have time.
