Submitted by: bobscafe
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Happened to see an orange tip fly by, and had seen one stop earlier at this tiny purplish flower, so got set up and was rewarded with these pictures. Sunny warm , low 70's, no wind. They never stop for long, so pictures are tough to get.
