Black and yellow mud daubers @ work

It was good to see a good number in one place at a time. There were always about two to six at excavation site digging the finer mud particles and then moulding them into small moist balls that could be easily airlifted to the construction site. They daub the mud with saliva (or whatever the secretion in there mouths) to make it pliable. The small moist balls are the building blocks of their nests located in our houses.
The wasps return from their respective destinations after the balls have been delivered. And the cycle continues probably until the project is completed.

All the while, I stayed still at a corner covering all the activities. And whenever I get noticed, a wasp (or two) buzz aloud in my direction. Soon, it backs off provided I do not meddle with their affairs. Or it simply finds another place to dig up. The mud was everywhere.
