I get it, I think. Especially from a hobbyist perspective. Why would anyone choose a hobby that costs a lot of money, most of the tasks take place during the hottest time of the year while wearing protective gear because the subjects of your devotion want to commit suicide trying to sting you. Not to mention the many disappointments that we read about in these forums. Gotta' love it.

Some people make their living from beekeeping, nothing oxymoronic about that.
