Leucistic Female Anna's Hummingbird

While out in the backyard Saturday afternoon, I saw this flash of white go by to my left, but as I turned to identify what it could be... it was gone. But I knew it was something unusual that I hadn't seen before. So I grabbed my camera and hoped whatever it was would return.

It did.

Having never seen a white Hummingbird, a quick google search seems to indicate that it is leucistic... there are albino Hummers, but they have pink eyes and feet, which this one does not seem to have from what I can tell. I don't know what species it is, and I'm hoping someone here can help with the ID... Anna's perhaps? I live in Yorba Linda, Orange County, Southern California.

The IQ is not great as these are pretty heavy crops, but I was thrilled to be able to document this rare visitor.
