Not sure if this is a "Paper Wasp" nest or Yellow Jackets'...Looks more like Yellow Jackets to me. Active nest none the less!

I'm pretty sure yellow jackets live in the ground. I vote for hornets. I wonder how long it took them to make it. Very cool!

Yellowjackets; yep. That nest's been there a bit, to be that large :) Nice find and good job not getting stung!
