Fun fact! The ingenious paper wasp constructs its nest from a collection of fibers from dead wood and plant stems, bound together by saliva. https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...

Congrats, you've earned yet another Spotting of the Day with this incredible series!

"Paper Wasps gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva, and use to construct water-resistant nests. Recent research suggests that paper wasps might have face recognition abilities comparable to humans!"
