It’s hard to miss this wildflower, with its two-foot to five-foot stem and umbrel of small, pink flowers at its end. The stem is weak and cannot stand straight so it twines around any object nearby, including itself. An odd characteristic of this plant is that, even days after the stem is severed it continues to grow and seed.
This wildflower appears March – June throughout the Sierra Foothills and the Coastal Ranges of California.

It’s all about capturing a moment in time. About discovering scenes that, when shared, generate interest and appeal.
I am absorbed in the passion for photography and derive great pleasure in being a part of this superb artistic community.

John Butler is a resident of Northern California. A builder, by trade – but spiritually, a naturalist and photographer.
