Yes it's ARP and is expected, see the RFC, or read any basic networking book. The host with IP (some Apple manufactured device) is looking for the gateway at which appears to be a DLink device.

The Apple and D-LinkIn parts appear because you have "Resolve MAC Addresses" enabled for the capture which allows the manufacturer specific part of the MAC address to be resolved to the name.
