I finally captured a different species of Hummingbird. It seems I always see the same types of hummingbirds around my house or whenever I'm out and about capturing photos. Most of them appear to be female as well. I was pleasantly surprised when processing this one, that it wasn't one I had captured before. For more information on the Calliope Hummingbird, you can visit hummingbirds.net.
Definitely one of the best photo of Hummingbird I've seen. This little guys looks very natural, and it is not easy to catch them in a quiet moment when they don't fight over a feeder. WEll done!

Thanks Cedric. This was actually a difficult shot to get. Where he was perched was difficult to get into due to trees, rocks, miscellaneous shrubs and the low angle. Fortunately, he kept coming back as I inched closer and closer in a semi-crouched position. Once I was set up, it was painful to stay in this very uncomfortable position for very long and my legs/feet started going to sleep.The price a photographer has to pay to get the shot is usually worth it in the end, as long as the captured shot comes out.
