Built With Love and Care

weekend reflections is right below

It's important to look up. I would have missed this wonderful structure if I hadn't ...




There was a park ranger nearby and I wanted to ask him what brilliant critter built this but he was busy being mesmerized by two young women in really tight running gear. I could have shouted "bear" but that seemed so mean. All three of them were so young and so pretty.

CAMERA CRITTERS

I took these shots in late November. I haven't been back to this park since our Christmas blizzard, it's just too hard to get around.

Excellent photos.

Nice photos. I guess it's tough being a Park Ranger.

That is impressive. Boy, being a park ranger must be really hard work ...!!!!! Stay warm! Happy Critter Day!

Wow! That is an impressive nest. Glad your weren't stung. I think I would have interrupted the park ranger!

Terrific captures.

Interesting nest. I'd be curious to know what critter built it, too.

Looks a lot like a yellow jacket hive to me. Nice shots, Dianne!

Tracy said...

Beautiful...the hive NOT the visual image of the runners! but I think it is a bee or wasp of some sort; ummm, not something to get close to by any means...

MaggieGem said...

Great shots... ah, to be young and beautiful... Park Rangers must have it rough!

What a terrific capture, Dianne! I would guess bee or wasp??? But not something to play with regardless. Ah, yes, to be young again and play with the park rangers -- but I digress, back to bees and wasps!!! Have a wasp/bee free weekend! Hugs to Hope and a big one for you, too!

Super pictures Dianne!
Everybody is on the right track. I believe this is a hornet's nest.

Beautiful is that first pic! I think I would have convinced you to yell "Bear" if I would have been there, LOL!

Well, if you had hit the structure with a stick and seen the wasps or hornets fly out, that would have gotten the ranger's attention! But seriously, hope you are up to snuff soon. I love the brick shot and the kitty/shadows one below. Good work!

I don't know how much of my family history to share on the blog...Knowing about the Holocaust is one thing. Seeing photos of my husband's grandparents who were murdered is a whole other level...That there was (and is) such evil in some people, I just can fathom....lots of tears in this one..

Looks like a wasp/hornet nest. Silly park ranger needed a poke in the ribs... LOL

It's a Hornet's nest!! I love to see those and used to have a huge one that we found somewhere. I think it got left behind when we moved from Miami 20+ years ago.
