Almost An Ambush

 The two Ambush Bugs (Phymata pacifica) that I first spotted on Monday, and made passing reference to on Tuesday, were on the same two flowers this morning.  The only difference was that one of them was paid a visit by an ant or wasp (I didn't check, but they're very much alike) and the visitor seemed to immediately detect danger and took off right after I clicked the shutter. 
The other one seemed not to have moved since Monday.  They are incredibly patient, although that word might not apply in their world.
