Bidens ferulifolia: Colorful reflected UV ultraviolet photography III

Today, as has been previously shown,  some more recent results with a bit more colorful images using various UV lights and filtering, when shooting in reflected UV light. I was using my "work horse" UV filter, the Baader-U filter and my CERCO quartz fluorite lens. Light source was an UV enhanced Xenon flash, except otherwise mentioned. Target was one of my last Bidens ferulifolia flowers, as the first snow has already been here...

Now this is "artsy" playing with light, but it still documents very well the prominent UV pattern this flower has. HERE is the same flower in 3D Stereo representation.

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