Here are two photos, taken seconds apart, of the same hummingbird, which is, I believe, an Anna's hummingbird. The iridescent red color only is apparent when the light comes from certain directions.

Nice photos.

I try to keep it simple when identifying hummingbirds. I just say hi, Fred and Ethel. Sometimes George and Gracie.
