Clay pots made by potter wasps

Clay pots made by potter wasps

I discovered four of these small clay pots made by potter wasps, on my gate today. They are exquisite little creations, a bit bigger than a dime (10cent coin).

A heart shaped door. There's love in that dwelling.

How cool is that? A little wasp house. The hole in the bottom one is heart shaped. :) V.

Wonderful textures and colors. I guess the wasps don't mind if you get up close for photos. V
