Thanks Quilldancer, you've confirmed what I suspected. For my non US visitors we call them wasps.
We also call them wasps here. Now, tell me, how did it end up on your workbench? Judging my the flat bottom, they were building under the eaves somewhere.
I'm guessing this fell off one of the roof supports. I think they are normally much bigger than this.
time for the wasp spray!!!!
That is so cool. Architecture. ANd a great photo, I might add!
It must be an old one or the inhabitants would still be there and you would know what it is.
It is the small, temporary nest that a queen builds until she can build up a small group to help build the big one. These smaller nests are never "finished." They are abandoned. You will find the full meal deal nearby, though.
