What I find amazing is how they are able to construct such symmetrical structures of hexagonal chambers.

What do you think? Did the superior structure of the honeycomb come about by evolution (as in 'by chance', 'by accident')? Or was it designed (as in programmed into the coding of the honeybee for example, the ability to construct such engineering marvels being encoded into their genetic make-up as part of their instinct)?
The waggle dance - the direction the bee moves in relation to the hive indicates direction; if it moves vertically the direction to the source is directly towards the Sun. The duration of the waggle part of the dance signifies the distance.
