Well caught!

She probably made this herself, then when her eggs hatch her daughters will help enlarge it for her. I'm surprised it's out in the open though! Smile

Super set, Carol. Not a favourite insect with me. They frequently make nests around the house, then think moving indoors might suit them better!
