Phalaenopsis stereo in ultraviolet and butterfly vision

Today the first post of year 2011 will be about shooting stereo images (for crossed eye viewing) of a Phalaenopsis hybride orchid flower in visible, ultraviolet and simulated butterfly vision using a special stereo setup I'm currently investigating.

VIS (normal human vision image 400-700nm using UV/IR cut filter):

UV (ultraviolet image 300-400nm using Baader-U filter):

BV (simulated butterfly vision image 300-700nm using my XBV2 filter):

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

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