Ithuriel's Spear by John Butler

Photographic Prints

Available to buy on…

This beautiful wildflower is a member of the Brodiaea Lily Family. It is sometimes called a Grass Nut or a Harvest Brodiaea. Clustered atop a long (sometimes 4’) leafless stalk, flowers can be purple to blue or pink to white. Leaves are long and slender, arising from the base of the plant. These wildflowers grow just about anywhere, below 3000 ft. in Western North America.

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.

    So delicate and beautiful!!!

  • Spring wildflowers are usually smaller than domestic flowers because lack of being watered, regularly forces them to stay small and delicate, conserve resources and commit to a very short season of growth and bloom. Thank you for your kind comment, Angie. John B
