The Landing Strategy of the Honeybee
A safe landing requires that the honeybee reduce its approach speed to nearly zero before contact.
Honeybees seem to use the simple fact that an object appears to get bigger as they approach it.
the honeybee decreases its flight speed so that the rate of apparent enlargement of an object remains constant.
By the time the honeybee reaches its target, its speed has decreased to almost zero, allowing it to land safely.
