May 24, 2007: Wasp builds home



Presented with no further explanation, xoB finds this beautiful set of a wasp building a nest.










glatt  Thursday May 24 08:57 AM

Very nice. What serendipity that they were there with the camera just as this wasp started building the nest on the statue.



Emrikol  Thursday May 24 09:24 AM

*sigh* just another chunk of mud I'll have to scrape off when they get done with it



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday May 24 06:14 PM

It seems kind of lonely, in a table for one kind of way. Real good photography, though.



be-bop  Thursday May 24 06:34 PM

Ahhh, now we know what's causing the great bee die-off/colony collapse.

This picture illustrates the limited depth of field in a close-up photo.

What? No 2.5 car garage with opener, no three bathrooms? I can't believe those pictures were taken in America......




monster  Thursday May 24 09:38 PM

(If it tastes like chicken, I reckon it's more of a wing flavor 'cause there's not a whole load of meat on there)



wolf  Thursday May 24 09:38 PM

I need a large economy sized can of Raid House and Garden just thinking about looking at these.



busterb  Thursday May 24 09:54 PM

Looks like a dirtdabber to me, not a wasp. But whf do i know?



Ibby  Thursday May 24 09:58 PM

Too bright and too mean-looking, it's a wasp.
*shudder*



lizzymahoney  Friday May 25 01:50 AM

A mud dauber is a wasp, if that's the same as a dirtdabber.



SPUCK  Friday May 25 06:59 AM

The spiders she's gonna paralyze and stuff in that hole with eggs layed on em are going to do the real suffering.

Think Alien..... Still my favorite movie.

Wasps, that are not white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant.
Quote:
Wasp, common name applied to most species of hymenopteran insects, except bees and ants. Insects known as wasps include the sawflies, the parasitic wasps, and the stinging wasps, which are the best known. About 75,000 species of wasps are known, most of them parasitic.
Like humans, only the females are dangerous,
Quote:
All female stinging wasps can defend themselves and their nests by using their ovipositor to inject venom. Males do not have a stinger.
Bye....gotta go hide now.
