I love that first photo too. One of the best pictures I have ever seen of a hummingbird. I have the same feeder you have turttle.

It's difficult to tell adult females from juvenile females. Beak length may be a clue if you have another one to compare with. Juvenile males haves some brown streaking and maybe a dot of red on their throats. Adult females and all juveniles have white on the tail. Late in the season it is harder to tell them apart.

Here are some photos. You can try to guess which age and gender they are for fun.

I just saw a hummer at the feeder. I'm still getting migraters
