    Or should I say, the size of a penny. I found this little clay nest on the wire frame of the planter on my balcony. Much too small for a wasp. I wonder what it could be for.

    I only got bit maybe two or three times in 56 years and I'm around them a lot. It's actually the little ones who are the aggressive assholes. Those great big big ones never came after me.

    Lots of varieties of'm. The muds are annoying. One built a nest right after I painted. How rude. But I've got another really cool one, a scoliid. They're huge and beautiful. I walk right over to them, not aggressive at all.
