Every so often nature provides an experience that wasn't expected and it did so today whilst stripping an old roof. I was tearing back the old felt
and battens to replace them, ready for new tiles, when I saw this surreal-looking sight.
It's an 'infant' wasp nest that never got the chance to get past a few days old. The image looks like something out of a science-fiction movie and
is a golf-ball sized nest suspended in air by a cobweb.
I was lucky enough to be able to pick it up without it disintegrating as the cobweb acted like a , duh, web and just hung it perfectly between the
fingers. If you look carefully, there's a suggestion of the hexagonal structure inside...
There's a clearer, almost identical one
The plan was to hairspray the crap out of it and give it my oldest nephew because he's four and they love that stuff. I left
it somewhere safe and the damn wind smited it into nothing.
Glad I got the pictures.
