Shimmering bees

Bees are awesome, right? I recently heard about "Shimmering" on QI, my favourite non-sensical informative TV show. Shimmering can be described as a Mexican wave, a sort of synchronised pulse going through the entire hive to make it look like a single entity to fend off enemies. It looks amazing, check out the video below.
