Mud Nest


This elaborate mud castle was about 15 cm long and made in several layers. It seemed to be abandoned now. Just like the American Indian Cliff Dwellers.


Rocky cliff in a steep forested ravine, Chorreadero Park above Chiapa de Corzo, Chiapas, Mexico.

You are so right Argy! From the precision of the Honey Bees to the "Just-Slop-it-On-There" of this one is amazing.

I love how some wasps create maths symmetry and some work to whatever works for the circumstances.
