On this Harvest Night, Isabelle is getting excited about visiting family to fill her bucket with candy, or as she refers to candy, diabetes.

Alisyn and her friend Nicole came by to have pictures taken in their costumes. Alisyn is a busy bee!

Kelly and I spent a few hours Sunday at the Fullerton Arboretum. This is such a great place to walk. This rose is actually bright red, however, the lighting was pretty bad, so I ran it through Photoshop and came up with this "artistic" version.
Just as I was focusing in on this butterfly, he/she decided to split the scene, so I only captured the getaway shot.
Field sobriety test - "okay, one foot in front of the other, I want you to walk along this line."

Today, I visited the California Police Motorcycle Rodeo in Huntington Beach. This statewide event, hosted by Orange County, usually draws about 30 teams comprised of over 200 motorcycle officers from all over California.

The officers compete in multiple obstacle courses where their skills are tested. This is an awesome event to photograph, and I look forward to visiting again next year.
It was good to see officers from my hometown.
One of Garden Grove's finest navigating through the course.
They came from near and far to compete.

Tuesday, I visited the arboretum at Cal State Fullerton College. This is a wonderful place to walk, with well maintained trails and an incredible assortment of plants and trees. There are waterfalls and two ponds where wildlife congregate. Lots of birds, turtles, butterflies and lizards can be found while walking the trails. There are lots of park benches to stop and rest in the shade.

This photo shows new growth among the older trees.
There is a wide variety of cactus in the arboretum, so take the time to visit this area. There is not much shade, but the variety of plants is well worth the trip.
Lots of wildlife to watch at the ponds. Take your lunch and sit on the grass field next to the water, and you will see ducks, snowy egrets, turtles, etc.
