A few days ago, Sea and I went walking in the tall grass near our house.  We followed the well-worn trail, and stopped next to a tall stand of trees.

We listened to the wind blowing in the branches.

Talked about the grasshoppers we heard buzzing in the grass.

And then, he pointed.  Look at that!  Silly me, I was taking pictures of him pointing.

When I looked up, this is what I saw!

 Needless to say, we tread softly from that point on.  I, for one, have never seen a wasps nest quite so close.  It was pretty impressive.  But, as much as Sea wanted to step up for a closer look, I decided we were close enough.

What a wild and wonderful place is the earth.
