Orange throated Ruby throated hummingbird

This fellow showed up in the garden this morning, I have been trying to get a really clear photo off and on all day but he is being chased away by another male so this is the best I have so far. From just looking on the internet this is apparently uncommon ...maybe he spent the summer sipping too much orange liquid from oriole feeders! LOL  All 3 shots are from different attempts so the light and angles are different in each - the last shot was in shade under the apple tree (and he did have to back away so the string from the niger bag was in front of him!!!)
