what a lovely looking bird. I'd like to know what it is

I think that is a Ruby Throated Humming Bird. They are common in the US.
They are very small but very fast and feed off of nectar from flowers. Hence the long, narrow beak.
They can also hover and fly in practically any direction including reverse.
Their wings beat so fast they make a humming sound which is where the name comes from.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You can put out feeders for them. They are usually clear plastic tubes with little holes at the bottom
that are tipped into plastic flowers. Hummingbirds are attracted to bright colors, especially red.
You fill the tube with sugar water, often colored with red food dye.

The reporters were all abuzz recently in the Hummingbird Times claiming that processed sugar water
with red dye is nothing but junk food and is bad for your health. But most hummingbirds will still flock
to the feeders because they are predictable and they can drink their fill without having to fly from
flower to flower all day long.
But you have your hard core fitness hummingbirds, mostly the ones who subscribe to the
Hummingbird Times, who will still spend all day seeking out real nectar from various flowers.
Do they really live longer? It's hard to say.
