Praying Mantis

For the past several days, I've been watching a praying mantis hunt insects in my office.  While entertaining, this is not an optimum situation.  This afternoon, I managed to catch it and put it outside in the barrel garden. 

Just now, I spied another one and caught it.  As I stood up to take it outside, I found a third  staring at me from the top of my monitor.  Fortunately I am ambidextrous and successfully relocated it as well.  Hopefully that is all of them.  They are extremely valuable pest control and I want them outside where they can safely reproduce.
