autumn insects

first i was but a split second from trying to suck this bee up my nose

Bees:
Busiest and most useful of insects so it is time to examine your own productivity in life (mentally, physically, spiritually), shows how to communicate effectively, teaches how to carry loads and ideas to make them productive, teaches concentration and empowerment with lightness and agility. Are you reaping the honey of life by your dreams and opportunities? Are you productive in your actions?


then this guy was on my window screen

Praying Mantis:
Power of calmness, stillness, silence, time of meditation, inner reflection, stillness in healing or in creativity, teaches how to manipulate surroundings with skill, direct the body's energy to empower the body. Are you taking some quiet time for yourself? Are you being patient with those around you? Are you moving toward your goals? However slow it may take, patience and perseverance is the key. Are you allowing the time to stop and pause in between tasks? Are listening carefully to yourself, others and your surroundings - in other words are you paying attention? Praying Mantis can teach you how to balance these energies.

Those are really great pictures! I especially like the second one. It is amazing what you are getting from that camera.

Did you know that the praying mantis eats the head off the male after they mate? Kind of makes me want to become celebate. Hurts just THINKING about it.

WONDERFUL pictures.

thanks for stopping by yehudi and for taking the time to comment

i did infact know that the praying mantis eats the mantid after mating )though being on the right gender side of the mantis world, i am mildly less disturbed then you) but i thought this bug was actually a stick bug, so i still learned something new...

Shalom Molly,

And it's a Gal. The male mantis is about an inch long.

Sheesh, no wonder they get eaten.

B'shalom,

Jeff
