Fighting Carpenter Bees

Description

At least I think these are carpenter bees. Taken April 19, 2009 outside Los Angeles, this appeared to be two bees attacking one. They flew around, crashing wildly and ignoring me. Is it possible it was two males trying to mate with a female?

Here's another account of fighting carpenter bees: [link]

I got some nice SD footage of the battle, which I'll upload to YouTube at some point. :)
