Sparrow Couple and Wasp Mom  Good Neighbours by Psithyrus Sparrow Couple and Wasp Mom  Good Neighbours by Psithyrus
I saw a really spectacular photo of two perched birds watching a potter wasp fly by. I just had to draw a cartoon version of this cute picture. A new sparrow couple watch bemusingly at their potter wasp neighbour as she builds her urn like nest to feed her hungry larvae. She carries a mud daub under her head to finish her second mud pot. These wasps feed their grubs caterpillars, so they are wonderful beneficial insects in the garden. I raise potter wasps for my small garden. Please enjoy these silly little guys :)

all the best,

Blair

Are they fascinated by the wasp or do they want to eat it?

Very beautiful, Blair! Love the detail of the bird's plumage, the texture on the branch and the dynamism of the wasp's wings. Nice job!
