Potter Wasp nest — size of a small pea.  Potter wasps are solitary wasps that build these mud jugs to hold a single spider or caterpillar to feed a single larva.  Most potter wasp nests I’ve seen are around grape size — I have yet to spot the obviously small beast making such a tiny nest.  Nikon D800, 105mm, 1/125th @ f/18, ISO 500
