Default I know its not an infection, is it hops?

When I went to transfer my IPA to secondary to dry hop last night I found all these yellow dots on top of the wort. I didn't worry, but after a bit of racking I thought maybe it was because we used leaf hops in the boil? Has anyone seen these yellow spots before, and was it from leaf hops?

Its a glass carboy, the racking cane is in the carboy when I took this picture, it's taken through the glass at an angle. I've never seen yellow yeast, I had some co2 bubbles, but this was new.

Are you talking about the floating "islands" on top of the liquid?

Yes, but they also stuck to the racking cane and you can see as the liquid lowers they stick to the side of the carboy.

Ah ok. It is yeast. It's nothing to worry about.
