Costa's Hummingbird at Blue Agastache

I painted a bunch of small (5x7) watercolors last week of hummingbirds and flowers.  Most of them were Anna's, but this was my only attempt at a Costa's.  Seen in the right light they shine purple in the throat and cap.  Painting it was more difficult than I anticipated.  I occasionally see them in the garden and my dogs come running, curious as to what's making me squeal.
