This is about a Bidens ferulifolia flower, one of my fav UV "models". I took some shots, in normal human vision, in UV using the Baader-U and Jupiter-U filter as well as in simulated bee vision using my various XBV filters respectively, that simulate insect / bee vision in just one shot.

This flower has a very prominent UV pattern on its UV-bright petal tips.
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
