[UV] Phalaenopsis flower at 300-350nm reflected UV ultraviolet photography

I have previously shown here, how the world looks like at 300-350nm. Now more how a flower (Phalaenopsis in that case) looks like at 300-350nm in reflected UV photography in comparison to using a Baader U filter (320-390nm) and in normal visible light.

Visible light:

UV: Baader U filter:

UV: 330-370nm:

UV: 300-350nm:

In the last 300-350nm shot, the colors denote: yellowish green is 330-345nm, blue is <325nm.

These triptychs will show the differences side-a-side:

The shorter the waveband used gets, the more details the flowers reveals.

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