Brood or honey identification

Hi Everyone

I’ve done what old timer suggested in the Beginners Mistake thread by removing the supers and the comb and putting one super back. It was a bit of a nightmare. Bees everywhere which despite heavy smoking didn’t want to leave the frames so I had to bang them off. I couldn’t see the Queen so I’m hoping she was in the brood box. I was hoping all the frames were just honey but I guess not. Can anyone identify from these photos please?

Eggs last for 3 days. I usually check back in 5 days to look for eggs when queen presence is in question.
