Paper Makers

What a neat nest! Perfect papery hexagons, made from plant fibers and wood pulp, aka paper!

This is the work of the native northern paper wasp (Polistes fuscatus) with one egg per cell, as you can see in the photo. The winged adults bring caterpillars to feed their larvae, but the adults consume only liquid nectar.
