Hi Everyone,

Went to a Nature Center w/ trails. I did not get to walk far but almost at the very beginning was this wonderful nest.

Cool looking isn't it? Almost looks like its made out of stone but of course it is not.

Would anyone happen to know what type of nest this is?

Thanks for your help. :-) Pelle

That must hold a lot of wasps pelle!

I read some have 5-6,000 in them, they just keep building.

We've always called them yellow jacket hornets but they are really a wasp
