<p>The time traces of a honeybee's orientation in response to flight sounds (A), dance sounds (B), and white noise (C) are shown. Each loudspeaker (#1, #2, #3, #4) produced a single sound source according to the honeybee's orientation. In dance or flight sound localization, honeybees tended to orient from −0.5π to 0.5π during their flights when the #2 or #3 loudspeakers produced dance or flight sounds. Honeybees did not orient in any particular direction when white noise was produced.</p>
