Bees and flight
Do you know anyone who has/are doing research on how bees fly
(or any other insects with the same "wing construction" as bees)?
Has anyone filmed/studied in detail the air currents around the wings?
How the insect is using the air's viscosity to fly/float in the air.
Yes, this research has been done, though I don't have the specific cite.
recently it was written up. You might want to try the archives of Science
There is a good chance you would find a lead there.
Also, what might be of interest is the work of Dr. Elizabeth Capaldi
the University of Illinois). She has been using radar to study the flight
of honey bees. You might find leads at the U of I department of entomology web
