I am assuming this shows where mud wasps laid their larvae. It was in a tiny cave on the ceiling.

Grubs of a black and yellow mud-dauber. They were safe in a small round case of dry mud attached to a surface, until the case accidentally fell to to the ground.

Black and yellow mud-daubers have been observed to build nests made entirely of mud which is often obtained from river or stream banks. The wasp lays eggs into the hollow nest when it is dry. Then it stuffs the nest with killed but uneaten prey as spiders, ants, etc., (as seen in the last photo) for the larvae to feed upon. After which the nest is completely sealed.

Nests are frequently constructed in shaded niches, often just inside of windows or vent openings, and it may take a female only a day to construct a cell requiring dozens of trips carrying mud. Females will add new cells one by one to the nest after each cell is...
