Today shots of the very decorative late summer berries of the Snakeshead - Arum maculatum 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 UV-Nikkor 105mm quartz flourite lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at f8.

Triptych (left to right): Human vison, reflected UV, simulated bee vision:
This attractive berries shows no prominent UV pattern, but a metallic like shine, peaking at around 365nm, invisible to us humans, and all this gets nicely visible.
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...
