Speed and Patience

Ever since I was a kid I've thought Praying Mantises were cool. Always very still and watching! Taoist Priests tell us that from the Praying Mantis we learn Speed and Patience. They only live for about a year and are among the insects commonly kept as pets (Not for very long though, ha). They rarely stalk their prey but prefer to ambush them. Speed and Patience.
