05.24.07 PAPER MAKERS


Wasps knew long before mankind how to manufacture paper from plant fibers. These Paper Wasps (Polistes genus) are building a nest over my head on the front porch. A little too close to our family activities, unfortunately, since these wasps are a benefit to my garden, eating flies and beetle larvae.

Yasuko and I do appreciate your postings! We have natural beauty around here, too ... A pair of Canada Geese are on parade with two goslings. We watched the nest-setting for several weeks, it seems.
