In February 2014, I found this elongated nest full of the wasps hanging from the back of the leaf of the Wild Cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum iners).

I recalled seeing a similar elongated nest at Ang Mo Kio area back in 2011. The picture was unclear because the nest was high up on a tree and my camera did not have the capacity to take a good picture at that distance. Interestingly, the nest was also found on the Wild Cinnamon tree.
