A Caymanian Wasp For Tim

Even on vacation, we think of our blogging friends.

No trip is complete without an insect photo to share!

Oooo, pretty! Looks like she's chewing up some wood to make paper for her nest.

And, she looks rather a lot like Polistes bellicosus, a fairly aggressive paper wasp found all around the Gulf Coast. Although, given how far Grand Cayman is from anywhere else, odds are that the ones there have diverged a fair bit from the ones on the mainland (unless they just recently arrived by hitch-hiking on ships).
