I discovered this falling apart wasps nest in a tree a few days ago. I returned today to photograph it.
Before today's snow I gathered some of the wasp paper. Wasps make their nests by chewing wood pulp and sometimes other stuff they find lying around like plastic. I have often used wasp nest paper in my creative projects.
Of course you want to wait till fall or winter before collecting a nest. Be sure no wasps are in there. LOL.
