Praying Mantises Having Sex In The Garden

I found these two getting it on in the green bean vines the other day. My hope was to catch on video the final moments when the female eventually eats the male (something my Girlfriend, who was really pissed at her ex at the time, wanted to see).

Unfortunately they were at this for hours. I even set up my video camera on a tripod and left it out there. In a hour I would come back, they would be in the same position, I would rewind the tape and do it over. I couldn’t find any info on how long they take. It was getting dark and the sprinklers were scheduled to come on so I gave up on them.
