Today shots of an attractive summer flower, a creamy yellow Day Lilly - Hemerocallis lilioasphodelus in reflected ultraviolet photography using my "work horse" UV filter, the Baader-U filter as well as in simulated bee vision using my proprietary XBV filter. Lens was my CERCO 94mm quartz flourite lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at about f5.6.

Triptych (left to right): Human vison, reflected UV, simulated bee vision:
Most Hemerocallis have a very prominent "dark throat" UV pattern, and also that gets nicely visible, also in simulated bee vision.
I have previously written about that flower HERE
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
