Wasps in the sidewalk

Jacky and Allison and I went to the Spring creek prairie Audubon center, where we found a number of interesting things. Many photos, so I’ll display only a few in each of several blog postings.

This particular series comes from the sidewalk in front of the visitor center, where a wasp had discovered a soft spot in the concrete and decided to excavate a nest.

Allison and Jacky spotted it first, buried to the waist in its excavation. It backed out, carrying a bit of dredge spoils, deposited its load, and returned for more.

I imagine the visitor center people will be less than pleased when a nest of wasps develops at their front entrance.
