Paper wasps II

This paper wasp nest is being build under the roof of the front porch of the reception center at Bosque Santa Lucia. Actually the nest may have been completed already. It appears that some of the comb cells have received the queens eggs and have been sealed off. Now comes the question, which one is the queen? Click in on the image for an enlargement of the image.

Hi, I like your site- very informative. My wife and I are considering on moving from the states to central or South America- which makes your site even more interesting to me. I love nature and learning about the world around us- and it is obvious that you do to.

I keep a blog of the common wildlife in Alabama. I try to make the article fun as well as educational. If you get a chance- let me know what you think. I also consult with a friend of mine that is a biologist (as is my wife.) http://natureatcloserange.blogspot.com

Keep up the great work!
