Potter Wasp.
Exact species name unknown, help needed.
Last Sunday I went out with my friends and one of them spotter this wasp. By that time its have finished its nest and closed it (may be laid one egg and a caterpillar as food for the larvae). Still bringing the mud to do some finishing touches to ti nest. The form of the nest is interesting, it almost looks like a thorn in the dry branch, may be camouflage because sometimes it use to bring the mud that matched the plant color. How thoughtful.

Hello Nagaraj,
An interesting picture showing the Potter Wasp at work. Really well shown against the light, creating a kind of silhouette picture. Lovely Nagarjan tints too.
I don't mind the abdomen of the wasp not being totally in focus.
Kind regards

Interesting insect captured from a good POV with excellent details and nice colours. Well done!

Hello Nagaraj,
this is a painful insect if it stings. The features and its nest is well shown against the green background.
Simple shot but full of knowledge.
Like the scene as this insect is quite fast.
