Orchid in simulated Bee Vision

An inspiration by Bob Friedmann showing his excellent VIS and UV images on nikongear.com. I wondered how orchids would look like in simulated bee vision using my "multispectral in one shot" filter XBV2.

Here it is, simulated Bee Vision shot using XBV2 filter, high power UV flash, UV-Rodagon 5.6/105mm....and no focus shift.

Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
