Pixy blinking purple-blue at bootup

Sometimes when booting up while getting powered by a raspberry pi 5 my PixyCam 2.1 device starts flashing pruple then blue then purple again and so on with around 1 second intervals. This continues for sometimes up to a minute before starting to function correctly, however sometimes it doesn’t flash at all. When it does start flashing plugging it out and in fixes the problem. What does this flashing mean?

How are you powering your Pixy? Does this happen when plugging your Pixy into a USB cable?
