Paper Wasps

Frank: On 08/28/2010 I photographed this paper wasp nest in our yard. It is six feet off the ground in the red maple adjacent to the deck. Photo (A) is the west side looking a little rough yet. Photo (B) is the west side one hour later with finishing touches completed. Photo (C) shows the entrance on the east side of the paper wasp nest. I don't know how long it took the wasps to complete the nest, but it was definitely less than six days. I hope the woodpeckers don't tear it apart this Fall. It will make a nice specimen nest.
