Human Mating Behavior Observed in the Wild

While waiting for the bus Saturday night I observed a gentleman drunkenly attempt to woo a female.

In this photo you can see him impressing her with his wit and charm.

Here he makes eye contact with the his chosen female.

In this photo you can see that the male has attempted to finalize the seduction with physical contact. Judging from the female's body language he mistimed this move.

Eventually a second male appeared and, as you can see, the original "macker" has backed off from the female. It is unknown whether or not the second male was participating in a "blocking" maneuver or if he was protecting the female from an unwanted advance. Unfortunately the bus arrived before I could determine the role of the second male.
