Sunday Snap : Bee keeping, China

Stumbling upon this honey bee farm in Dalian, Liaoning province was one of the most interesting experiences I have had. This chap had no fear, brushing away the bees with bare hands before placing the comb in a silver cylinder (seen behind him). After spinning it by hand for around 10 seconds, the honey was dispensed straight into a tub ready for eating – nothing added, nothing taken away. Thousands of nonchalant bees flew around me as I watched, seemingly used to the many visitors walking their dogs on the path next to their hives. A fantastic effort to keep such an important species alive – bravo Mr Bee Keeper!
