Wasp snags debris with foot

Wasp snags debris with foot

This wasp nests inside a vinyl window entering through the weep hole that allows moisture to drain out the bottom. Today they cleared out debris by pulling it out with their mouths. When a piece was too large to exit cleanly, they hovered and snagged the material with a front foot and then fell down quickly pulling out the remainder. This series was taken from inside through the window.
