We saw these same insects gathered in ones or twos on a few other blossoms (see the other photo), but we only saw two blossoms, both on the same plant, with this number of the insect.

One or two flowers on each branch of a stem open in the late afternoon. Today was overcast, windy, cool (60's). Did that affect the time the blossoms opened? Didn't seem to affect the number that opened.
Four chambered fruit, opened, with one seed left.
Quail is on diagonal branch of tree, approximately 2/3 of the way up the branch.
On soap plant flowers.
