This is wasp resting on its nest which is at the base of a fir type plant in the garden. The nest is at ground level and is constructed between the lower branches and they hold it in place. There are hundreds of wasps and they have been very aggressive, swarming out and attacking anyone gets too close. To me (as a rank amateur) the body doesn't look long enough (also seems smaller in size) to be a common wasp - I would really like to know what type of wasp it is.
