Paper wasp nest and larvae

Polistes exclamans

Description:

I've been following the progress of these wasps over the past few weeks. Today I decided to take another photo and was surprised with how big the larvae were already! Truly amazing!! (Photo #1) The second nest (photo #2) seems to have more wasps tending to it, so I suppose that means more larvae in the nest at the moment! I will keep an eye on it! Enjoy :)
