Calliope Hummingbirds

Two Calliope Hummingbirds touch bills in a display. Ages and sexes are still not verified but it appears one is a juvenile and one is an adult. Taken on a property near Kaleden, in southern BC Canada. I had set up my camera and tripod near my friend’s feeders when I realized my settings weren’t right. As I dialed down the compensation, I saw these two birds “fizzing” each other out of the corner of my eye and immediately clicked the shutter. Couldn’t believe that they were touching bills and it was in focus.
