This was in my back yard, but hummingbirds can be photographed anywhere here in the Rogue Valley, including in the town of Grants Pass. Drive to the intersection of Highway 199 from the southern Oregon coast and I-5 as it passes by the town about 53 miles north of the California/Oregon state line.
Hummingbirds can be photographed easily if you have patience and small telephoto. The trick is to position yourself for lighting and composition before the hummingbird arrives :)
As I waited just outside his "comfort zone," this little hummingbird stopped his feeding long enough to rest for a few minutes on the stem. I was ready and captured this image of a beautiful little feathered bird :)
