Illus. friday: Intricate

+ A wasp nest is a perfect example of how nature can prove to be the most intricate force in life. Not only in it's creation of the wasp, but the wasp's creation of its nest. A very great undertaking, crafted with instinct and precision.
+ Another form of Intricacy is that of evolution. Making subtle but distinct differences, in this case, elongating the abdomen of a wasp in order for it to better access the chambers in its nest when laying it's larva.
