Observed while waiting for wife in The Whistling Chicken fabric store... We went on a crazy east TX shop hop... In other words, I explored relatively close to these stores. :)
Found on wall in house; we netted it and sent it outside.

Gathering some mud for a nest next to someone's garage, probably. :)
This thread-wasted wasp was constantly on the move in my backyard so I had trouble capturing a clear image. This is the best of about five.

What in the world in going on here?!
The top nest has been behind my door knocker for two years. This week I noticed a second best. Haven't seen the wasp yet.
