What do you do if you're a blogger and a wasp decides to build their home on the eave of your house? Well of course, you run out and take pictures of the process! Unfortunately, I accidentally got it wet while using the hose and he quit building.
Sorry guys, I forgot to give a timeline. It only took him three days to get from point A (no nest) to point B (last photo), four days tops. He was a speedy little worker. He never came back after I inadvertantly damaged it so I finished knocking it down.
I also neglected to say that I sent my brave son (with the camera) up on a small ladder to get closer to the creature. He waited and waited and finally the wasp came back, but Haden came running down the rungs because 'He's looking at me!', when the wasp quit looking and started working Haden climbed back up and said 'He won't look at me.' - I laughed, cuz I'm that way. :)
