Nerdin Gardens: Stretching the Prospecting Muscle

 

Venturing out to the gardens in search of Praying Mantis hatchlings can become an adventure. Extremely elusive at a glance, knowing where to look, with an experienced eye, helps.

 

They are diligent, self-motivated hunters, often traveling to great lengths to forage. Well-honed instincts guide them to food sources, their stealthiness provides cover against predators.

 

After looking for quite some time under/over leaves and high atop stately Hollyhock towers, I spied with my side eye...a tiny mantis stretching itself an effort to satisfy his appetite.

 

Remaining alive depends on consistent methods implemented every day. I was so excited, took a picture to remember and celebrate his most welcome presence in Nerdin Gardens.

 

We can all learn good habits from nature's ways to create an even better work ethic every day and stre-e-e-e-tch ourselves!

I look every day to capture their growth...that is...when they allow me to Ed Silva. Nature has a purpose for each and every creature and some end up on the short end of the stick, you might say!

We have several varieties that are fun to watch, especially when hanging about in the back yard garden, Brian England. They see me long before I spot them!
