Great shot. Am agreeing with Don that this is probably an Anna's hummingbird, male.
I believe the Ruby Throated hummingbirds don't travel as far west as California.
I live in British Columbia, Canada, and the Anna's overwinter here - we've just started having one visiting our gardens during the past week, so I hung nectar out front and back for it/them. The one visiting us is a female I think, as it just has a touch of red on its gorget.

Great shot of the hummer V-Koski! Really nice. But this is not a Ruby throated humming bird like we have here in the East. I believe it might be an Anna's hummingbird. A ruby doesn't have any flash color on top of his head, only on the throat patch. Like I said, Great shot of a real beauty! Don

Thanks everyone! I've followed him around the yard quite a bit and have taken lots of garbage shots before getting this one! Acutally Carol, this is a Ruby. When they turn their heads just right, the color pops out!

This sure is a Beautiful photo!! I've been trying all summer to get a shot of the hummers around here with no luck.

Beautiful hummer,we only have ruby throated hummers here in Maine.
I would love to see this kind.
