Beekeeping the hard way - you must BEE able to cope with heights!

This fearless Chinese beekeeper perches precariously among his bee hives on a mountain slope in the mountains of Shennongjia Nature Reserve in central China’s Hubei province - and this is his apiary. To work his bees, the beekeeper has to stand on top of one hive to get to the one above.

Beekeeping has been carried out in China since the second century and China currently produces half of the world's supply of honey.
