Science Center Singapore 2016 exhibit about butterfly vision

The Science Center Singapore  will open an exhibit in 2016 which will include a showcase about butterfly vision. Some of my Treasury flower - Gazania rigens images will be used for this purpose, as these clearly demonstrate the difference between human and insect vision.

They have chosen my work, as it "shows a great and interesting contrast between how we usually see this flower, and how the same flower might be perceived by a butterfly, particularly the colours and directional markers"

I have written about this flower and how this was photographed HERE
Stay tuned, more will follow on that fascinating subject...

More info on this very interesting field may be found on my site
