Deserted & Abandoned

Deserted insect nest, Macro (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"A vacant mind invites dangerous inmates, as a deserted mansion tempts wandering outcasts to enter and take up their abode in its desolate apartments." ~ George S. Hilliard
I don't know what species of insect built this yellow mud home on the dead stump. The nest is small, built for a solitary type; only room for one. A single opening with the hint of a silky web inside; could this be home to a spider or wasp? I don't have the answer, but as I gently tap on the dome there is no sound, no movement, no evidence of occupancy. A home built with care, now deserted,abandoned.
