A Paper wasp relaxing at its nest under the back verandah. I think this is one of the parents, there has been a constant stream eggs/sacks and little wasps in each of the nest ‘rooms’.
Magnification about 2.0x lifesize.
The standard view does not show detail, particularly in the eye so… Please view large (1600px)
