"Ashy Sunflower - Helianthis mollis"

Visible light image


UV image using Baader-U filter:


Simulated bee vision image using XBV filter:


Triptych of the above images:


This flower shows a very specific and unique UV pattern, its petals are UV reflective around 385nm up to the middle (which I haven't seen anywhere before) and additionally reflect at 365nm at its tips. The rest and its center is UV dark forming an UV bullseye pattern.

Cheers, Klaus

Hi Klaus,

because this is the English speaking sector I don`t write something in German

I like your pictures very much. They show another point of view. Only problem for me is the harsh light on some photos. But you did a great job anyway.

Thanks guys.

Egbert, guess if you'd do UV photography, you'd see that "lighting problem" as the least to bother about... :grin:
