A young (I think) Calliope Hummingbird was "fizzing" an adult Calliope perched on the branch and I clicked the shutter just as their two bills touched! I had set up my camera and tripod just a few feet away, but was fiddling with settings on the camera when I saw the display interaction our of the corner of my eye. *Its hard to tell the age and sex of hummers in mid-summer when the juveniles are around - they are both Calliopes though!

Location: near Kaleden, British Columbia, Canada at a private residence
