Do bees bank over when they turn in flight or do they just alter the angle of their wings? I'd like to know and cant find out - bored today.

They just hum a bit louder out of the spiracles on one side and breath in on the other side.

All the Bankers I know sting us for massive bonuses they certainly do not deserve.

Probably alter their C of G and lean into the curve, bit like a hang glider!
