I think that this is a Purple beardtongue (Penstemon cobaea).
It's related to the wildflower Foxglove beardtongue (Penstemon digitalis), which I've seen and photographed numerous times. For the life of me, though, I can't find it posted in this blog. Terrible oversight.
This shot, showing the inside portion in perfect focus, would not have been possible before I got the ring flash. It was shot at 1/60 sec; f/32; ISO 100. The great depth of field is the result of the f/32 aperture.
Switching lenses over to a telephoto, I sat still for quite a while waiting for birds to return to my backyard feeder. Here's my little Chickadee:
This was shot at 1/100 sec; f/6.3; ISO 200. More than ever, I appreciate the patience and dedication of wildlife photographers. Glad it's not my job.
