A National Geographic moment is taking place outside an attic window, and Vangelis Tsal has captured the scene on video.

In what is reminiscent of a mail order ant farm with its see-through window, a wasp colony has built a nest on the outside of a window, allowing Tsal to see the inner workings of a wasp nest.

"I live in rural Greece and this wasp nest was made outside of a window of my house," Tsal told GrindTV Outdoor in an email. "The wasps chose randomly the right place! Their work is in progress so more videos will follow."

Tsal posted his first video to YouTube and Reddit, where it went viral. Take a look:

Tsal subsequently posted the following video that included sound from an external microphone. "Do you hear the thousands [of] little footsteps?" he asked.

Tsal also tried a timelapse video for the first time. Posting one shot every five seconds, the video gives an idea of how active the wasps are.

The wasps are actually European hornets, Tsal said on his Reddit post.

"Winter is coming and the wasps will die by natural causes in 1-2 months," he wrote. "If they cause trouble before then (though they are there for 2 months without a problem), I will kill them with a long torch. The high temperature melts their wings and they become harmless and defenseless. We do this many times around the house in the summer."

In the meantime, Tsal will continue to enjoy the show, which is something you'd expect to see on the National Geographic Channel.
