Allen's Hummingbird in Utah

This tiny Allen's Hummingbird or Selasphorus sasin has been zooming around our hummingbird feeder for the past two weeks. It pretends to be "king of the hill" and tries to drive away any other hummingbirds in the vicinity, usually without much luck. I have no trouble spotting him, but I have a really hard time getting him to sit still long enough to get a photo in focus, especially one showing his gorgeous throat feathers.
