Bald Faced Hornet Nests

Having just returned home very late last night, I do not have a farm update quite yet, so I’ll leave you with one last look at some of the animals of Mexico.

While we were at the Cenote Dos Ojos outside of Akumal I noticed one of these nests hanging on the ceiling of the cenote cave overhang. It didn’t look like any wasps nest that I’d ever seen, and the first one I saw was unoccupied, but it was quite beautiful.

When I started looking around while taking some photographs I came across several more nests that were inhabited, but they were too far away to tell what kind of bee-like creature they were. Upon researching it tonight I have determined that these were nests of the Bald Faced Hornet, which I’d never heard of before but we do have them here in the United States.
