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.

    Excellent macro, John! Congratulations on your feature in Fungilicious – FAVE:>)

  • Thank You Mother Nature. I have been out, looking for more mushrooms. Unfortunately, we have had many frosts and it has damaged the delicate funguses.
