Science - Zoology / abeilles
English term or phrase: waggling/to waggle
Ce "waggling" est un mouvement que les abeilles font lorsqu'elles exécutent la danse en huit, aussi appelée danse frétillante.
Il y a "waggling" "waggling run"...
Voici quelques exemples:

..determined as being suitable is shown by the waggling part of the figure-eight dance.

If the food source lies exactly in the direction of the Sun, or in the exact opposite direction, the waggling runs in the dance will be vertical

By varying the angle between the waggling run and an imaginary line running straight up and down

...and the duration of waggling and buzzing on every straight line.

They use the “waggle” dance, what’s also known as the “figure-eight dance,”

Merci beaucoup.
