Proudly showed me this eggs, she choose a very sweet spot below a banana leaf, very protected from rain, a first class real state for wasps.

Fantastic!! I'm surprised her head and one of the eggs came into such sharp focus. Very well done.

She needed the photo for his pregnancy record book so wasn't going to attack until the time I send him the prints :)
