New Mexican Vervain

I went backpacking recently and found this little guy on my way down the trail. Not sure the kind of flower, but the purple really caught my eye.

EDIT: I was searching the website for a local nursery (Flagstaff Native Plants and Seeds) and I just happened upon the name of this flower. It's called New Mexican Vervain.

Beautiful!! I captured the same type of purple flower here:

I absolutely LOVE the white flower you put in your blog header. I've been trying to capture that one for a couple of weeks and have never been satisfied with the result. Yours has the interesting angle and focus on the pretty inner parts that really work.
