Bidens meets UV-Planar 4/60mm

Some Bidens ferulifolia shots today using the famous UV-Planar 4/60mm lens and my proprietary XBV2 butterfly vision mapping filter.

visible light shot: 

butterfly vision shot (simulated, using XBV2 filter): 

That last image has the ultaviolet image a butterfly (and bee) is able to see, mapped into our human image (blue, green, red) as blue so as to simulate the tetrachromatic butterfly vision.

I'm still amazed about what nature has developed to attract butterflies (and bees) attention!

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