[UV, VIS] Hippeastrum (Amaryllis)

This is about Hippeastrum or as it is called here, Amaryllis, usually sold around Christmas time. It was shot using my UV sensitive camera and a Cerco 94mm lens. Filter used for the UV shot was the Baader-U filter and a modified high power Xenon flash served as a light source.
