That's a lizard? The thing in the hanging off the nest? Looks like a scorpion or something. I'm so confused...I think the pic viewing part of my brain short-circuited or something.

The lizard is the thing on the right in the box. It looks like a rust stain.

Whatever it is it appears to have very big antennae.

The real question is: Were those bare black (hot) wires exposed all the time , or did Flint take a wire nut off when he opened the box?

I know things are bigger in Texas, but that looks nothing like a wasp

Huh? It looks exactly like a wasp. You're looking at it from underneath.

Still looks like a cricket or scorpion to me. Must be the camera angle.

Cricket to me, as well.

That was the second critter I was referring too.

It might not be Mom, it might be baby just crawled out and still drying off, too soft to fly and not yet adult colors. it would make a soft tasty snack at a time like this, which might explain the lizard. Lizards don't have jobs, so they can hang out and wait for events like hatching...
