Abstract

Morehouse and Rutowski make interesting comments on the difficulties of untangling complex optical phenomena. However, our use of a four-colored transfer test in our original study, along with spectrophotometric analysis of the nonoverlapping colors produced by our target disks, allows us to conclude that bees can learn to use iridescence as a foraging cue.
