[UV] Dianthus flower: 340nm Jupiter-U vs Baader-U for reflected UV ultraviolet photography

Again more about that new Jupiter-U filter of mine. Also those shots were taken today at the wonderfully blossoming Hermannshof, Weinheim, Germany. This is about Dianthus ("Coronation") and its specific UV reflectance.

another Dianthus type:


Overview, again different ones:


The Jupiter-U filter reveals quite a bit more details than the longer wave Baader-U filter obviously.

[UV] Crab Spider on Geranium flower: Baader-U vs Jupiter-U filter for reflected UV ultraviolet photography

Again more about that new Jupiter-U filter of mine. Also those shots were taken today at the wonderfully blossoming Hermannshof, Weinheim, Germany. This time it is not only about flowers, also about an insect, a crab spider in that case.

Quite interesting how that spider looks like in UV on that flower.

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