Bell wasp nest II

This is a bottom view of the wasp nest with the only entrance to the 8-story building. I'm sure that these nests are 100 waterproof when in use. They are always placed out on the end of a high tree branch, where predators have difficult access. I've read that the wasps secrete a chemical on the tallow that supports the nest that wards off ants and other insects wanting to invade the palace.
