Abstract: Honeybees are capable of learning, remembering, and recognizing a variety of different cues that signal the presence of a reward. In nature, these cues are not as finite and unchanging as cues they are often tested with in the lab. In fact, there is a constant stream of information moving across the visual field of the honeybee in its natural environment, either caused by movement of the honeybee itself, or by movement of objects in the surround. This study looks at whether honeybees can discriminate between differently colored landmarks as well as differently shaped landmarks when these cues are unexpectedly set into motion. The findings suggest that honeybees are capable of recognizing color cues in motion having only been exposed to them in a stationary context. However, they were not able to recognize shape cues when in motion to a significant degree.
