    Beautiful. So similar to other scenes in nature…seashell, desert landscape, deep sea coral. Thank you for sharing. Xoxo

    Seems creepy. Were you scared upon waking up to it? -P

      Relieved, actually, it just seemed like one more event in the cycle of nature, whether they abandoned the nest and then it deteriorated, or something in the elements of the weather….I tend to think it is the former, since I imagine the nests are generally weatherproof.
      Signals the change of seasons, I suppose. And the colony was never aggressive towards us, we just kept a careful eye when passing.

    It probably morphed into this because someone swatted the hell out of it with a broom handle, probably after getting stung. We had those in Minnesota. It is beautiful though, because when we see it we see miraculous natural paper which until recent history was a rare and precious thing in itself. People might have lived their lives without ever seeing a precious piece of paper unless they were priests or royalty. Now we wipe our asses with it.

      Hi Garce,
      Your comments are always worth waiting for…
      Natural paper has a special beauty all its own, and I am hankering to incorporate these wasp nest leaves into some sort of art project, but we shall see.
      No one in our household seems to have taken a swing at the nest, that is for sure, unless a valiant neighbor took a stand during the night …
      My vote for the nest’s demise is still some act of nature, either the creatures leaving or other act of God.
