Biography:

John Racette is a naturalist photographer and writer who lives with his wife and sons in Albuquerque, New Mexico. On warm days he can be found crouched in a field holding a Kodak Easyshare Z5120 (he retired his Kodak DC3200 with the philatelist's magnifying lens taped to the front). On cold days he stays indoors. What's the point, right?
