bald faced wasp nestIf you’ve been following this blog a while, you’ve seen this before. Not this photo, not this example, but similar. For nature follows cycles, and so too does this blog. Pieces of the past summer’s Bald-faced hornet (Dolichovespula maculata) nests, now abandoned by the generation of 2012, get blown out of trees this time of year. Somewhere nearby, a mated queen, tucked into a protective nook, awaits the long days of spring and summer to begin the building anew.
