Rufous Hummingbird female showing her colors

Today this female Rufous Hummingbird showed up in my backyard, and immediately found herself in conflict with the male Anna's Hummingbird that has claimed the feeders as his own. But she is not backing down, and seems to be getting her share of the sugar water. A few years ago there were only Rufous hummers here, but the Anna's are now here year round, so it's a special day when a Rufous shows up, and shows off her colors as this one did this morning.
