I spent the day with an amazing photographer who was keenly observing a number of nesting bird families in the Portland Metro area. Scott Carpenter knows his local neighborhood birds better than anyone I’ve ever met. He knows their habits, where they’re nesting, and the best time to capture their activities. I couldn’t have taken this picture without him! Scott’s Photography Website

Dixon and I took our cameras downtown. He experimented with time lapse. I took this one. Funny thing is, I’d forgotten it was cinco de mayo weekend and there would be fireworks. When we walked in the door at home, I heard them. And remembered. We’d have been in the perfect spot!
