Can anyone identify this hummer? (large picture)

I'm clueless when it comes to birds, but I do know I LOVE hummingbrids :)

I was laying in my hammock this afternoon with my camera in hand and snapped a few pictures of this little friend. Can anyone indetify him/her? It had an iridescent back, I'm not sure if that helps or not.

Also, how can you tell the difference between male and females?

Thank you,

Andrea

Since you're in PA, it's most likely a female Ruby-throated.

Female Ruby-throated hummer...

Male Ruby-throated hummer...
