Did That Really Happen?

If there is a life photo list, I have just added one, and it's a dazzler!  Around here I never, ever see two hummingbirds together except in moments of aerial combat.  Let alone the chance to get a photo of the same.  But today I looked up to see a male and female perching peaceably at this nectar feeder.  And the male was in brilliant gorget display from my position.  I do not understand the bird psychology here as the hummers are no where near breeding time and they always defend their feeders from one another with ferocity.  It's almost as if they wanted to get a good blog post!  I don't think I'll see it again for many years.  But what a moment!
