On another level, but still beautiful in its own way I suppose, we encountered a wasp nest in one of our trees. I’d never seen this kind of wasp before, so we looked it up on the Internet and found out its name. Its a species of paper wasp called apoica pallens, quite common in South America. They are large with white bodies, as you can see. Nocturnal in nature. I don’t know what they eat at night, but there they are all nicely huddled together during the day.
