Rather a lot of wasps on a garden bench
No interactions present.
probably impossible to identify, I'm afraid: but it's clearly not a good place to sit at that moment!
on the bench looks like they could be collecting wood to make paper.

It is possible, but not what they are doing just now. It is clear from the antennal length that many if not all of these wasps are males. It seems there is some sort of social interaction in progress, but I don't know enough about wasp behaviour to guess what.

There were two species here at least. They had been pestering my bees.
