    Default Bee abdomen pulsing

    This is probably very basic but I don't know the answer......Is the rhythmic pulsing of the bee's abdomen have to do with respiration or circulation or both?

    Thanks,

    Ray

    The chilled bee will pulse air through the body as a warming mechanism.

    I notice they do it when drinking water from the pond.
