Artist's Description

This photo shows a Paper wasp tending to the next generation. She beats her wings to keep the larvae cool. Larvae at two stages of development are visible in cells.

The name “paper wasps” typically refers to members of the vespid subfamily Polistinae, though it often includes members of the subfamilies Vespinae (hornets and yellowjackets) and Stenogastrinae, which also make nests out of paper. Twenty-two species of Polistes paper wasps have been identified in North America and approximately 300 species have been identified worldwide. (wiki)
