Yes, usually they live a solitary life........but i am pretty close to sure, that they came close to each other, for the reason of mating. The upper one should be a female and the other a male. As i was trying to take this photograph, the second one was continuously following the first one and that too really close. summer is the probable time to spot these. yes, these days they are getting close to rare.
