ID help needed

I'm not sure exactly what this is or where to post it :hmz: Does anyone have any idea what the "honeycomb"-like structure on this rock might be? Seen at Ngotso weir in mid-November 2014.

It's a Hornet nest. Not sure which one?
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.
