I believe this is an immature male Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus). He is taking a break in the butterfly garden at Rotary Botanical Gardens in Janesville, Wisconsin (USA). Rufous Hummingbirds are very aggressive, and there must be parents around somewhere, although we didn't see them. Maybe that accounts for the fact that we only saw one other hummingbird in the gardens on the 1st of August, 2018.
