Great shot John. How did you find the cocoon? And I hope you share some that followed this one to show the adult bee/wasp.

Thanks for sharing. K

I raise Mason Bees, so that one was one of the cocoons that I harvested. The one in the OP is a male Red Mason. Here is a higher mag shot:

I also raise European Blue Masons:

About the only way I can tell them apart is by looking at their eyes.

Thanks for the reply John. I spotted a couple of potter wasp jars on a weed last weekend, so you’ve given me an idea.

If you have any paper wasps in the area then put out some color construction paper for them. They will build rainbow colored nests out of it.

Thanks! Honestly more satisfying when I get a chance to tutor someone, or when someone gives me credit for helping them improve their photography.
