What is the different between C. officinalis and C. arvensis?
I think, there are just too many wild species of geranium
Slightly smaller than the Anna's that visited the feeder just before it, and noticeably larger than the Calliope that came right after it. The bird in the photos is in the shade.
Small hummingbird, smaller than Anna's and Allen's, both of which visited the feeder immediately before the Calliope. No red was visible, but that is probably due to the light angle. The bird in the photo is in the shade.

Female "Carpenter Bee"
Shrub 6' high x 4' wide. Trefoil compound leaves in a whorled arrangement on stem. Small yellow flowers.
I Found this at Diamod Park
Purple flower about the size of a quarter, growing in a shaded area. (I can provide additional photos if necessary.)
Photo of male.
This bird was too far out of the normal range of my small digital camera, thus this photo is the best I could do.
Observed one "tangling" in flight with a Lorquin's Admiral (one photo shows both species).
They're looking a little beat up.
Sorry for the (slightly) fuzzy photo.
Photo is of a male.
