aren't they hectic? In the

aren't they hectic? In the end I had to choose a flower and just wait for it.
There's a distinctly grey one buzzing around with this, all the same manners, perhaps a fraction smaller, I thought they must be male & female?

Hectic

Yep they are, it was just a case of point and shoot, no time to set anything up and it was off after just a few seconds. I'm not sure on the male and female question but I'm sure someone will know.
