This summer was a bad year for bees all over our metro area. Less mosquitoes, but more bees. The bees were rather annoying when trying to sit outdoors for dinner. I was sitting outside at our patio table when I suddenly noticed this gigantic wasp’s nest in the tree nearby. I can’t believe I never noticed it being built – it seemed to appear just overnight. It is a masterpiece of nature when you think of all the work the bees had to go through to create it’s paper-like shell. I’d love to tear it down and look inside, but would rather leave it to nature.
