    Can't help with the ID, but a good (if somewhat scary) shot. :smile:
  4. Look like a type of Paper Wasp, cool you can see things in the cells, I wonder what there feeding them..

  5. Thanks for the comments everyone. Kramp, paper wasp sounds like a good name to me. My kid is fascinated by them. We can't get her to leave. One day she will learn (maybe, I never did!).
  6. Good image Greg. One thing you don't want to do is to let them get started building their nest on your house. I have seen their nests grow to 6 or 8 feet and a professional had to be brought in to get rid of them. I occasionally have one get started on my front porch and get rid of them immediately.
