User's notes

The sequence of images shows a wasp collecting wet mud to make its pot shaped nests. The first image shows the wasp holding the liquified ball of mud between its jaws and with its front legs, just before flying off. The markings on the wasp's body appear to show that this is the same wasp seen in sighting 4463644.
