M3D: MandelBeeHive  (UF0580) by barrowda

M3D: MandelBeeHive (UF0580) by 

Featured 1/27/12 in Artists Universe

Created in Mandelbulb3D as a major tweak from Jim373’s World of Spheres which was in turn a tweak of parameters given by dA’s mcimages. Some minor postwork in GIMP, with final render in UltraFractal.

I wonder if these bees know the Waggle Dance? I also did these observational experiments 40 years ago as an undergrad in a UNC Ethology course. :o)))
