Bee learning and communication
Honey bees are sensitive to odors (including pheromones), tastes, and colors, including ultraviolet. They can learn such things as color discrimination through classical and operant conditioning and retain this information for several days at least; they communicate the location and nature of sources of food; they adjust their foraging to the times at which food is available; they may even form cognitive maps of their surroundings.
