Ruby Throat Hummingbird

We have a hummingbird feeder on the deck and one day a male came into just sit on the feeder, not really drinking, looked somewhat dazed. Then a female approached and started attacking him. Came up behind flapping her wings at him and then on top of him starting to use her beak on his head. He flew off and down into our flower garden and stayed here (pic) for a number of minutes before flying off into the woods.
