Caption

Wasp nest on a church window. This nest has been built by the common wasp (Vespula vulgaris). This wasp, which is a social insect, often uses old buildings as a site to build its nest. The nest is made of concentric layers of paper, produced by the wasps by chewing wood. The nest is initially built by a queen wasp who lays eggs. The first few eggs develop into worker wasps who then finish building the nest and support the queen as she lays more eggs. Photographed in spring, in Harston, Cambridgeshire, England.
