A Potter Wasp Nest

By | August 16, 2020

This Potter Wasp Nest was on a pine sapling in my yard here in Arkansas. This is the second one of these I have found. The first one was on a rock I found while hiking the Ouachita National Forest.

I read that Native Americans based their pottery designs upon the form of local potter wasp nests.
