Australian beekeeper Paul Wood removed a treasure trove of honeycombs in the form of a massive beehive hidden in a woman's home in suburban Brisbane, Australia. Wood removed the 50kg (110.2 pounds) of honeycomb, including the 60,000-bee population of the ten-month-old hive on Saturday at the behest of the house's owner and transplanted them into what he refers to as a "free-range hive" in his backyard.
