I do believe that is all they were doing.... I mean really, WHO would ever capture two hummingbirds mating :~)

Oh, the mistake here.... My flash did not fire.... but, I thought the silhouettes were kinda cool!

    The one hummingbird's attention is focused completely on eating and the other bird didn't get there quite as fast as he wanted to by the way it looks...I love the silhouettes...Great entry!

    CAtching two mating is definitely preferable to catching only one.... A perfect shot, Maurie, and the silhouette keeps it from being, well, too descriptive. ;-)

    I guess we'll never know......but the hummingbird on the back doesn't seem at all interested in food, although I do detect a little smile on his beak!! What a fantastic, one in a million shot!!!!
