Scientists discover bees can tell a Picasso from a Monet

Scientists in Australia have discovered bees have a remarkable ability to distinguish different types of paintings.

The experiments, carried out at the University of Queensland, showed the bees could pick a Monet over a Picasso.

The aim of the research is to discover more about how bees search for food and help us understand how humans learn.
