Patiently Praying Pays!

 

As you can see from the picture, the Praying Mantis utilizes every angle possible when preying. Ten minutes prior to passing by this plant, she was hanging about, perfectly still, using stealth to prey for a meal.

 

Then 💥BOOM💥!

She strikes, capturing the yellow wasp that landed nearby.

 

Basic instincts play a huge part in the Praying Mantis's methodical success. Honest intentions, zero time off, little to no wasted efforts, no excuses, only the desire to survive and thrive daily in it's environment. 

 

Remaining in the real estate industry requires patience plus strategic methods and sincerity to be acknowledged by buying and selling consumers without giving away your position to the local competition. 

 

May all your prayers be answered!

We saw a praying mantis the other day, they are protected in PA, and she looked quite healthy. I like your photo, like a heron they need a lot of patience to stand still and wait.

The are masters of being still and camouflaging to their advantage out of necessity, Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543. Unfortunately, their numbers are declining due to poisons that people spray to prevents pests. We do not spray anything in our garden!

They are good at controlling pest populations, Grant Schneider. Did you know that if you found an abandoned wasp nest or if you bought a fake one and hung it, wasp's will not invade? They are very territorial and will not come near another wasp's nest.

I can't even imagine a life without prayer, haha.  Praying is definitely powerful and I have always loved the look of a praying mantis.
