Waggle Dance

This honeycomb motif is getting ridiculous, but here's one that actually has to do with bees.

Honeybees perform a nifty figure-eight dance called a waggle dance to communicate the direction and distance to food.

I first created a three-dimensional honeycomb sub-unit of two joined hexagons extruded and beveled (if you can't visualize that, they individually look like figure-eights or lemniscates). I then duplicated those figure-eight sub-units along the curves of three levels of mutually warping associative arrays to set a world record for the figure-eight with the most dimensions, a key breakthrough

I'm on the phone with Guinness now. . .
