nil bees given away all colonies
I was sent a sample of honey from Frisbee.
It was a multi-floral honey with a fruity taste. It was reasonable clear but we don't really want crystal clear honey with no goodness in it.

Here's what I found.
I made six slides as there was so much Top Fruit grains that I had to try and find other grains.

For those that are microscopic minded the shots containing the scale were at X400 and each division equates to 2.5 microns.
The other shots were taken with a digital microscopic camera.
