Gorgeted Woodstar female

Can someone please identify this hummingbird? Taken at Finca Alejandria "El Paraiso de los Colibries" - Cali, Colombia in July. I believe it's a Gorgeted Woodstar female, but could be a White-bellied Woodstar female or Purple-throated Woodstar female.
Thanks
Chris

Female white-bellied woodstar. It has a white belly... (but also green central tail feathers which rule out gorgeted as this has a wholly rufous tail; same for female purple-throated). Very nice pics!
