"I study insects."
"What’s your favorite insect?"
"Tell me something interesting about the honeybee."
"Honeybees will leave their hive once a year to mate. Even though the queen has plenty of males in her own hive, she will only mate with the males of another hive, which insures genetic variation. Honeybees can also sense the magnetic field of the earth, meaning they can fly several kilometers from their hive and find their way back home."
