I think it's an Anna's Hummingbird or a Black-chinned Hummingbird
It could also be a Broad-billed hummingbird, as the picture looks like there is a bit of a blue tint to its feathers, and also the white supercillium (stripe above its eye) could be indicative of a female broad-billed
Okay. From what I can tell, it looks more like an Anna's than a Black-chinned, which I would expect to be "cleaner".
I don't, unfortunately. This was an accident. I was photographing the flower and this little guy flew right in front of the lens.
Do you have a photo where the face can be seen?
