This is going to be more like Not So Wordless Wednesday, but I must fill you in.
So we had a wasps nest in our backyard. Seems the wasps liked the bird house Logan painted (the birds certainly did not!) and decided to make it their home. While the kids were playing soccer today they accidentally knocked the birdhouse down into our planter. One wasp landed on our back door as if he were trying to get those pesky kids who knocked his house down:
Once the wasps had stopped swarming (there were only a few) we went out to check out the nest that had fallen out. We noticed some newer larvae, and then some of the cylinders were covered (like a little cocoon).
I grabbed a stick and peeled one open, and look what came out:
This guy must have been very close to ‘hatching out’ on his/her own.
Upon opening up other ‘cocoons’ we discovered developing larvae.
