Allison, Myra B.

Myra Allisonís keen awareness of wildflowers began in 1989 when her daughterís 7th grade science assignment was to collect and identify wildflowers in the Harris County, Texas, area. Photographing wildflowers became a next step for Myra. On a month-long summer stay in Vail, CO, she earnestly began the process of finding, identifying and photographing (not collecting) high country wildflowers--even up into the alpine tundra areas. Equipped with field guides, a Nikon F2 35-mm film camera, a macro lens and a tripod, Myra became hooked on the adventure. Many of her photographs of the native wildflowers were displayed in the Vail Nature Center where visitors could get assistance in identifying and appreciating the unique flowers of the Vail area. For years thereafter, summer vacations to various regions of the country were focused on photographing and identifying wildflowers. The challenge of being self-taught in both the areas of flower identification and photography has somehow added to the appreciation of being in the field. She says her conversion to the digital age has better allowed her to share the beauty and amazingly intricate handiwork of nature through her photographs.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is committed to developing the premier resource for native plant images in North America through continued growth of the Plant Image Gallery. You can help us achieve our mission ...to increase the sustainable use and conservation of native wildflowers, plants, and landscapes... by becoming a contributor.
