Hummingbirds really do HUMMM!

Now, I know. Hummingbirds really do hum! We were sitting on our patio when this little fellow decided to flap his wings hard enough to let us know he was there. It was a much louder sound than I expected. Louder than a cat's purr.

Our little hummingbird is visiting quite often. I want to get this flower again next year to bring him back. I thought it was an impatient, but it seems like a different variety at least than my potted impatients. Can anyone name this flowering plant?

I was just outside with my morning coffee and a hummingbird almost flew right into me! Is the flower a New Guinea impatient?
