These Wasps Use Colored Paper To Make Rainbow Nests
Wasps don’t have a favorite color. Colored paper is still paper to them, so they didn’t mind taking that and turning it into their flashy new rainbow nests.
This redecoration is actually a result of an experiment carried out by Mattia Menchetti, a biology student at the University of Florence. The Idea was to give a captive colony of European paper wasps colored paper instead of the usual plain variety. It took some getting use to, but eventually the wasps started using it instead of plain paper and as a result made these awesome looking vibrant nests.
