You can do a lot by subtly tweaking what’s “normal.”
In this case, the local paper wasps have to deal with the problem of finding a big enough sheltered area out of the rain for a whole nest. Looks like there really isn’t one in that area of the backyard. So what did they do? Build three small nests, that fit into the rain-free area sheltered in three separate palm leaves.
So… this just poked the bunnies, about what if the story’s hero runs up against what isn’t quite a normal problem for the setting? Not an insolvable problem, just… odd. 😉
