Busy wasp


By mad


Since seeing Toto’s marvellous photos of the single mum wasp, I’ve been looking at them with new eyes. Every morning a particular wasp (yes I do recognize her, she seems a bit darker looking) comes to the birdbath for drinks, lots of drinks over and over again. She always flies off in the same direction, over the hedge to next door’s. Could she be building a nest which needs lots of moisture to chew up the paper or wood to build the nest? I’m intrigued.
