If Only We Could Run Errands Like Bees

We've been running a lot of last-minute holiday errands over the past couple days, and this reminds me of our inefficiency compared to that of honeybees. I've seen articles before about the ways that bees maximize their time/effort when they gather pollen and nectar. I just read this article on the Denver Post's website, and I like how the author also mentions other cases where humans (and computers) can't match the natural abilities of animals.

Well, it's just one more reminder that we'd better help take care of bees because we're not going to be able to replace them!
