This frame is interesting because it shows both "wet" and "dry" cappings. Bees seal each little hexagon after the honey they have put in there has been brought down to around 17.5 % moisture. These cappings look quite different from each other but they both fulfill the same function. On the left side of the frame we can see a leathery or "wet" look and on the right, white or "dry" cappings. The honey tastes exactly the same. Bees of Italian heritage use the "Dry" technique!
