A bumblebee in Great Britain recently set a record for the longest recorded flight (by a bumblebee) when scientists released it 8 miles away from its home and the bee still found its way back. The scientists still don't know exactly how the bumblebee pulled off this stunt. Anyone else suspect performance enhancing nectar?
