Ron Parsons

Ron Parsons is well known both nationally and internationally for his flower photography. His photographs have been published in many books, journal covers and journal articles. Although a majority of his 80,000 plus slides are of orchids, he also photographs just about any other kind of flowering plant, and has an amazing collection of slides from many different plant families. He lectures frequently to Orchid Societies in the US (and internationally), as well as to Cactus and Succulent groups, native plant societies, gesneriad societies, and other groups of people interested in plants. He recently co-authored two books,
