Wasps Nest

The Beginnings of a Wasp Nest

Earlier in the year when we were doing a big clean out we found the beginnings of a wasps nest with some larva already laid, I felt sorry for the poor Mother wasp who had already done a considerable amount of work starting to build the very beautiful and intricit nest they make.  I know you are thinking they are a bit of a pain especially at this time of year when they are every where and I have been stung by a few over the years, but the work they put into making their nests is incredible.  They literally go around stratching the stems of plants and converting it into material to construct their own homes.  Not an easy taste such a small creature.  This is the first time I have seen one at the beginning stages of construction and it is truely beautiful for one so small.
