Usually doesn't seem much of a nectaring plant; I think fritillaries gather here because of a trellis of passion vine about 10 feet away.

The zoom makes this almost look like a tucan chilling in a rainforest because of the giant leaves and the long range zoom. Really, he's sitting on a Eucalyptus tree and the shot was taken under an apple tree. I think there is a nest up there because I see groups of them roosting up there daily.
