Hi all,

Here's a potter wasp (possibly Paralastor sp.?) on the wall of my house.

Another nice shot. Is the scene really as yellow as it appears in the photo?

Thanks very much Denis, Brian, Frank, Lester, Segidi and Andres!

The wall that this nest was built on is painted a fairly bright mustard-yellow colour, so the yellow colour is the true appearance. I did try toning the yellow down a bit, but I prefer this brighter version.

Cheers,
Stephen

Thanks Stephen, I had a sense it was as the wasp is natural looking.
