Close-up product shot of two jars of natural honey, one lighter colored than the other, sitting atop a painted railing with a very soft-focus green background.  The graphs on the labels show an analysis of the different types of pollens found in trace amounts in the two honeys, indicating what plants the bees were visiting while gathering the honey-producing nectars.  The lighter honey comes from a rural site outside Seattle where wild blackberry pollen accounted for 72.2% of the count, with clover pollen adding another 10.2%.  The darker honey comes from the in-city backyard hives and shows much more diverse pollen sources including 25% clover, 18.5% sweet clover, 14.5% wild blackberry, 13% cherry/plum, and 5.9% viburnum.
