Almost Born!

I found this enormous wasp nest and on closer inspection, noticed a little leg sticking out of one of the chambers. A wasp tried to break through and didn't make it. Kind of sad.....
These structures always amaze and fascinate me. What engineers these little creatures are!


  1. I love that top picture, it looks so sculptural. I'm not sure I would've known what that was if you didn't say! Great observations.

  2. Well, I'm a litle late here...but I agree that these nests are amazing, though I don't particularly like it when the wasps seek the heat of my home during this time of year. They're a bit slow though, and it's easy enough to help them out the window... back to where they really don't want to be.
