Bidens ferulifolia: stereo 3D reflected colorful UV photography

Today about stereo 3D shooting in reflected UV light using the same Bidens flower I have shown here in 2D. 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. Target was one of my last Bidens ferulifolia flowers, as the first snow has already been here...

3D stereo in my opinion even better documents the prominent UV pattern this flower has...

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