Here's something you don't see everyday - a little bit of nature for sale. Two bird nests (one still on a branch), some Cicada empty shells (insects already molted into singing bugs) and a large Bald-faced Hornet nest. Note -this hornet is actually a type of wasp, according to Wikipedia.

The bird nests are smaller and in good shape. The Cicada shells were left over when the singing insects molted in the summer and were left on Pine tree trunks. The hornet nest is bigger than a football and is mounted on a piece of black board with the name of the hornets and a Wikipedia description. It has a few large holes drilled in it by birds, who feasted on the hornets after the first cold snap. They enlarged the smaller holes the hornets used to go in and out of the nest. One holes shows the honeycomb inside the nest. The nest was made by the hornets chewing fibrous material and turning it into a paperlike shell.
I figure these items might be good for a kid's show and tell or for a classroom display.
