I tried to photograph this hummingbird on a number of occasions, and this is my favorite shot from my most successful outing. I don't know what the purple flowers are, but they last a very long time. Whenever a blossom falls off, another takes its place. There are also a lot of blossoms, which makes this plant very popular with bees, butterflies, and the occasional hummingbird.
