Apitherapy - Health through Beauty - Bees teach us true beauty is beyond appearances
I first want to outline the difference between the colour vision of bees and the one of humans. People can see colour with wavelengths ranging between 400 nanometers and 700 nanometers which correspond to the colours red (700nm) to purple (400nm). Bees on the other hand can see light ranging from 300 nanometers to 600 nanometers in wavelength, corresponding to a kind of orange-yellowish (600nm) to ultraviolet (300nm).
Knowing that bees can see ultraviolet colour and colour combinations (such as bee's purple, a combination of yellow and ultraviolet), led to the discovery that flowers actually do use ultraviolet colour to indicate nectar source as well as landing stripes for bees! This reveals that the true beauty of flowers (which are great symbols of beauty) is actually invisible to us humans! There are beautiful patterns which we can't see on flowers.
You might have heard the quote: "Only Beauty will save the world." This is a great quote and it takes a new meaning under the understanding that there is beauty beyond our perceptions. It means that this beauty that will save the world actually lies beyond our perception, understanding, and sight.
Here is another aspect concerning UV light in this video. Flowers not only reflect and use ultraviolet light and colour, but they also absorb part of it which is then transformed in the flower through fluorescence into visible (visible for humans) light that the flower emits. I include a few pictures I took myself demonstrating this.
I hope you enjoy and that this adds even more to your understanding of apitherapy, the bees and the amazing knowledge they give us!
