So while my friends were working on a deck yesterday, I had a little bit of free time and I started taking note of a wasp flying back and forth everyone once in awhile. After observing it for a little longer I concluded it was a mud wasp (since it was flying to and from a big mud puddle in our backyard) and noticed it was digging. It's pretty cool when you really observe things. I did this for about an hour, but I still don't know where its nest is. I was tempted to catch it and pin it as a gift for my friend Geoff (he collects bugs and plays frisbee) but so far have not been willing to take that risk.
On an Arachnid note, I've been getting a ridiculous amount of bug bites.
