An enormous hive measuring 1.5 meters across and weighing over 40kg has been found at the top of a tree.
According to local news reports the impressive structure was discovered by a man named Wu who had been out gathering mushrooms in the wilds of China's Hunan Province.
After using smoke to clear away the bees the intrepid mushroom-picker and two of his friends managed to recover the enormous honeycomb before selling it on to a wealthy businessman.
More details of the find, including a photograph of the hive, can be found below.
