potter wasp 2/3 : Australian hornet (Abispa ephippium)

abispa ephippium fabricius
I had read that these were solitary wasps, but there were two working on
this nest at the same time.

The Australian hornet (Abispa ephippium, actually a type of potter wasp or "mason wasp") is a vespid insect native to the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland and Western Australia states of Australia. The Australian hornet is a solitary insect, forming small nests against buildings and other structures. The adult wasp feeds off of flower nectar while the larvae are fed caterpillars captured by the adults.
