Orange coneflower - Rudbeckia fulgida in simulated bee vision II

Here more shots of that decorative flower meadow made of Orange coneflower - Rudbeckia fulgida var deamii in simulated bee vision using my XBV6 filter. Lens was my CERCO 94mm quartz flourite lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at about f5.6.

This attractive flower has a specific UV pattern, its petals have a UV dark bullseye pattern invisible to us humans and the flower center is quite UV dark, and all this gets nicely visible.

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