Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

Wow. That's massive, and a LOT of wasps. Imagine before humans colonized the planet these might have existed much, much larger!
Probably not larger.
It's the imbalances created by too many people that allow natural systems to get out of proportion like this. Without the "protection" of the (environmental pollution) junk car, that nest would not have gotten that large.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.
