Children are inquisitive creatures, as any parent who has been bombarded by questions from their offspring knows. Sometimes, however, those questions pique adults’ interest, too. Perhaps that’s why Dan Markham was so quick to oblige son Lincoln’s request to see inside of a wasp nest.
After slipping on a pair of gloves and picking up an extra-long kitchen knife, Dan began to saw away at the lair that the insects had built from old wood and plant material. However, the crunch of the nest’s thin layers was loud and almost scary to Lincoln, who would call the sound “disgusting.”
Then, once the cutting was complete, Dan opened up the nest like a melon he had just sliced in half. Next, he presented both of its sides to their camera to reveal what the interior of the nest looked like. And he and Lincoln, along with Lincoln’s friend Kai who had come along for the ride, couldn’t believe their eyes.
