From Wikipedia Picture Of The Day; September 21, 2013:
A beekeeper is a person who keeps honey bees. Reasons may vary, from the production of commodities, to the assistance of the pollination of various plants, to an interest in bees and beekeeping. Here, a German beekeeper in the district Hildesheim, Lower Saxony, Germany is holding a hive while wearing protective gear.
