I'm no expert on the skippers. I think this may be a Pyrgus, maybe a good old male communis, way way out in the eastern Mojave desert.
The flower, I'm convinced, is Viguera parishii.

I was going to say "wow!" or "wonderful", but didn't want to appear cliche. :-p

I like his? little hairy head. It reminds me of some flies I used to tie.

LOL! I started tying flies with my grandfather when I was about 10 years old. When I moved to Wyoming, many years ago, I finally got around to learning to fly fish. I rarely get to fish any more, but still have my fly rod and all my tying supplies.
