This funny little bug hut appeared on the brickwork in front of our house a couple of months ago.  I really wish I owned one of these right now, because I'd like to have a better picture of it. Every member of my family has tried to remove it at least once and I've slapped each of their hands back every time they go near it because I enjoy looking at it as I come through the front door.  It's smaller than a dime and after consulting my Resident Entymologist, Dr. Google, PhD, I learned that this is probably the work of the Sphecid Wasp, better known as a mud dauber. How did people know stuff before the internet?

Oh, that's right.
