Deal of the Day


Wasp Nest

We found this lovely wasp nest while hiking on some of the trails in our place. Fortunately, this was in November and the wasps were either dormant or dead. We did test the premise by poking at the branches with a five foot stick and then backing off a few more feet just to make sure that there was no unforeseen eruption of wasps. We don't know if these were ordinary wasps, yellowjackets, hornets, or some other form of paper wasps -- and we didn't want to be around in order to find out. Anyway, once we knew that the nest was dormant, we could get close enough to see lots of details. The main entrance to the nest is very visible at the bottom left.
