"Orange coneflower - Rudbeckia fulgida in reflected ultraviolet photography and simulated bee vision"



Reflected UV shot using Baader-U filter, simulated bee vision using my XBV6 filter. Lens was my CERCO 94mm quartz fluorite lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at about f5.6.

Alright, green petals and cyan leaves, what colour the sky and Sun. The buzz is, they use it for navigation?

This attractive flower in macro close up even more so shows its very specific UV pattern,
its petals have a UV dark pattern, invisible to us humans. It also shows the conical cell
structures that enable insects to have a better grip on the surface when landed..

Cheers, Klaus
