Blah. The most distinctive views of hummingbirds never turn into good pictures. I may have some backup pics for these, but they'll mostly be from similar angles.

Thank you all.

Minimally educated guesses:

Four and five look good for Anna's to me. I won't hazard a guess on the other ones.

1-5 look good for Anna's

6-7 look like Allen's/Rufous (can't differentiate with these pictures at this time of year).

I agree with the Anna's. I think 6-7 are Allen's. Unless you got a nice look at their backs though, it can be pretty hard to tell.

Great shots! I have never seen a hummingbird here in FL - you are so lucky!
