Wild bees castle

Some days ago, during a nice hike in the forest we bumped (not really actually, otherwise we would have destroyed it...) in an amazing insect nest popping out of the ground...
What is this?
It's tiny wild black bees and these guys are very active and fierce: the actually stick, haven't tried it yet and I am not really looking forward to do it... but my son did cry quite a lot, some weeks ago when he was stung.
Such a fragile and beautiful structure... sorry, I wasn't quick enough to stop one of my kids from lightly touch it and put a dent on the top corner.

But these busy bees started quickly fixing it and... before our eyes, not too long after the castle was completely restored!
Good job guys!
