Female presenting to male?

I have a female molly who hangs vertically and I have noticed she only does this when there is a male nearby. Is this a mating behavior? Is she presenting herself to the male? She is healthy otherwise and so evidence of swim bladder...she only exhibits this behavior when a male is next to her.

On iPhone here but heads up I find a bit more reassuring. Only other thought was I wonder if a learned trick to stop/slow him.
