Potter Wasp – the Nomad’s Neighbour
In the field of bees there are a few wasps that sleep at nights. Called Potters, because they make wonderful nest structures from mud. They usually roost in solitude in the long grass but occasionally can be found in twos or threes, and rarely next to a Nomad.
Like most creatures they are easily intruded upon but I have also found them to be gentle by nature, disinclined to aggression. Content to climb on a warm finger on a cold and wet morning.
They are also beautiful to look at with their wonderful colouring and strangely elegant form.
One of nature’s pleasures, to me. Living art.
