Bees communicate with each other, apparently, through very elaborate "dances" that somehow can be interpreted by other bees as relaying important information, especially information about the location of sources of pollen. Here's a fascinating article on this topic:

...apparently chimpanzees and bees share the ability to dance as a form of communication (see link below.) The intent is very different -- bees are mapping out where the pollen is; chimpanzees are showing a threat of force.
