Calliope Watch Continues

I will try again to re-find what I believe was a male Calliope Hummingbird at my feeder tomorrow AM.  Probably setup the gopro to film it not sure.  So wide angle not sure it would be good enough to ID with.

I did look through some photos of the birds I did photograph near that time at the feeder.  One ID's as a Calliope in Sibley's but it does NOT appear to be a Calliope to me, it did NOT appear to be the bird I saw when I saw it in real life but the photos were taken from a distance.  I could see it was thinner and smaller than the Anna's but not as tiny as the bird I saw was.
Here are the photos, can anyone see if this is an Anna's or a Possible Calliope.  I do NOT believe this is the bird I saw earlier.
