A Chinese beekeeper undertook a bizarre challenge Wednesday, standing still for 40 minutes as thousands of bees created a cloak covering his entire body.

She Ping, 34, was eventually covered in a suit of bees weighing an estimated 100 pounds. More than 460,000 bees were used in the feat, according to local media reports cited by Reuters and Agence France-Presse.
