Fearless bee keepers attempted to attract the most bees on to their own bodies using a queen as a lure.
The competitors stood on a set of scales to allow the judges to weigh how many bees they had attracted. Some ended up totally engulfed in a buzzing mass of bees, the winner managed to attract 26kg of bees in the space of 60 minutes.
Beekeeper Li Kongjiang, 20, stands with bees covering his body on a weighing scale during a "bee-attracting" competition against fellow beekeeper Wang Dalin in Shaoyang, Hunan province July 16, 2011.
