First signs of capped Honey

Well this is not our honey this is still in box 2 but we are getting close.  By next weekend we will probably be adding the queen excluder (sorry no queens allowed) and box number 3 which we can harvest. The will be very busy these next few weeks.  But here are some photos of what the capped honey will look like notice the snow white color in the cap.  The brood or eggs were yellow. 
 This photo shows honey up top and notice those dark cells that is pollen.
 Notice this photo has honey at the top and capped brood in the middle.  This is what we should be seeing food stored up top and eggs layed in the lower 3/4. with some cells of pollen notice the dark cells at the bottom.
