Identify this hummingbird?

tonybiermanJuly 18, 2014

Hi,

I snapped a few photos of a hummingbird on our zinnias yesterday. I'm trying to identify the species. Since we're in Tennessee, I was guessing it is a female of either the Stellula calliope, Archilochus alexandri, or Calypte anna variety. But, I'm probably completely wrong. Does any one have an educated guess? The photostream is linked below.

Thanks,
Tony

Thanks, ctnchpr. Glad I asked, my guesses were way off!
