Any good websites with images to help me identify and differentiate between capped honey/brood/pollen etc etc?

Here is capped honey, brood, and a queen cell. The white on the left is honey. The little caps above the queen cell is brood.



This is a frame of brood only, with a few open cells.

babnik, it is a bit confusing at first, even reading the descriptions. Rest assured that within a year, your eyes will know what to look for. I can't remember actually learning... it just became clear. When in doubt, just don't extract that frame.

Click on the pic and it will enlarge it, then you can click on the full page icon in the upper right hand corner (next to the "X") and it will blow it up even more.

It was all there with the exception of the queen cell, I robbed it from another hive and used this frame in a trap out. The queen cell is pinned in place with a frame nail, if you look hard at the top of it you will see the head of the nail.
