"The Colors of Florida: An Unusual Field Guide," his second book, was released on May 1, 2020. The book is a brilliant selection of Johnson's wildlife photography of the Florida peninsula. It presents the state's flora and fauna in a rainbow of hues that delights the eye, featuring scenes from both the Gulf and Atlantic coasts as well as springs, rivers, and lakes. Eighty-five species are identified in the index.

An unusual field guide, its photos are NOT arranged by species!

Instead, the pictures are grouped by colors that unfurl as a spectrum from page to page. Along the top of each page is a strip of color with a range of hues. The overall colors of each picture—or its focal point— fall within those hues.

The book can be used as a tool for artists and students in exploring and analyzing color combinations. A key to the most harmonious color schemes in art and nature is included.

Johnson's books are available at the
