Wasps at work

My friend Heather has a sweet little bird house in her back yard. It's been there for a while and I don't think any birds have ever actually used it. But yesterday she discovered that the wasps are doing a redesign job on it. Isn't this amazing? Yesterday it was just the waspy paper with no sign of life.

But today they're crawling all over the place. Kind of creepy. But they sure are industrious. I guess they prefer mud brown to turquoise.


  1. Amazing! It looks like they're actually working around the that just the photo angle?

  2. I'm not sure but I think they are working right into the opening. They're not going to be able to complete their task though, as Heather plans to have the pest control people come and eradicate the nest. Sad but necessary.

  3. I'm glad I got to see it then. Thanks.


I really appreciate your comments.
