Wasp's Nest

While walking around the lake at Belton House I was surprised by the amount of wasps. Here's where they live :-)

I always see similar nests atop the trees in my jungle, but they are homes of termites.

The wasp nest here look different and not as large.

Wasps really freak me out! I don't like them at all and I don't like the idea that one can sting you tons of times!

That's quite scary. I mean, if they got disturbed whether by purpose or accidentally,just be ready to run!:) And fast!

That's scary to me. I've been stung by a wasp, so they freak me out. Incidentally, there's a small nest outside my kitchen window. :)

John- that's quite a different nest from our paper wasps. It almost looks like a burl.

I try to stay away from wasps. They are interesting creatures, however.

That is a huge nest and quite scary. I'd hate to come upon that anywhere. Great capture.
