Scientists say the secret behind this remarkable "superpower" is ultraviolet light detection. We also have a high sensitivity to color across the spectrum of electromagnetic light from wavelenghts of roughly 380 to 740 nm. Bees can see colour. Polarized Light and Bee Vision: Sweetness and Light Karl von Frisch (1914) ... humans cannot perceive ultraviolet wavelengths or the polarization of the waves. They see in the ultraviolet wavelength. It is my understanding that bees see the ultraviolet end of spectrum just like any other colour. You see the headline "see the world through the eyes of insects" is erroneous. Bees, like many insects, see from approximately 300 to 650 nm. The bees however can see what is invisible to us. Wavelength is the size of the wave, or the distance between two corresponding points on waves – peak to peak or trough to trough, for example. Can these rays harm me? Instead, they see ultraviolet (UV). UV light has a shorter wavelength , higher frequency and higher energy than the light within the visible spectrum. Subject: What Animals/Insects Can See Ultraviolet Light?Which Ones Cannot? Humans cannot see ultraviolet light, but some insects, such as bees, can. Flowers often have ultraviolet “nectar guides,” which are invisible to humans but aid foraging bees. How Bees See Flowers. Ultraviolet light receptors have been found in analysis of diurnal birds, having been found over 40 species using a combination of microspectrophometry, electrophysiology, behavorial methods and gene sequencing. Their ability to see ultraviolet light gives them an advantage when seeking nectar. (see … In fact, color influences their behavior. Honey bees cannot discriminate reds very well, but in exchange they can see ultraviolet light—the same light we use sunscreen to protect our skin from. Ultraviolet waves can be used to "see" a cold virus. Many creatures on the planet, tetrachromats, have four cells, which can allow some to see ultraviolet light. Sunspots: Modern Research. Even though you can’t see them, infrared and ultraviolet rays can still cause injury. Human eyes can see only between 380 nm (violet light) and 750 nm (red light). In addition to their ability to see ultraviolet light (which comes with a heightened ability to detect iridescence), bees can also see polarized light. Difference between bee and human vision.
