Rudbeckia hirta Stereo Butterfly Vision

This is about a Rudbeckia hirta flower shot in human vision and (simulated) butterfly vision.

I'm always amazed about the differences in our human perception and how that very same flower would look like if seen through insects eyes (butterflies in that case).
