Paper nest

My folks noticed a large paper wasp nest while they were out on one of their walks with Kaylee, so the last time I stopped by Dad took me up so I could get a few photos of it.

This first one isn't the best quality, but I wanted to include it to provide a sense of perspective as to how big the nest was:

Same angle, but I was a heck of a lot closer when I took this shot:

I wanted to be sure to get a photo of this side so as to get a good look at how the wasps simply built their nest around the maple leaf that was still attached to the branch:

And a shot from the opposide side; you can see the hole they use for going in and out of the nest on the bottom left:
