Re: Am I the only one that the comb looks different in real life verse video?
The capped honey in my hive usually looks much lighter than the capped brood. It also usually appears like it is 'frosted.' But sometimes it looks just like capped brood. I saw this just yesterday, when probing at what looked like a cell with a pinhole in the cap. I thought it was foulbrood at first, but when I tore into the cells all that was there was honey, from cap to foundation.
I'm not quite sure why this has happened, but have a theory that it is due to recycling of wax. The honey in question was in a queenless split that was made toward the beginning of the flow in my area, and was some of the last honey to be capped. Most of the bees in that split emerged over two weeks ago at the earliest.
