Colorful reflected UV ultraviolet photography ?

I was always wondering if reflected UV photography would have to be so drab in terms of colors. We humans are so used to a wonderful world of colors, so I thought I should experiment a bit with that topic. Well, I was curious to see how that Rudbeckia fulgida flower I have here would look like, if I would create a bit colorful background for it, when shooting it in reflected UV light using my "work horse" UV filter, the Baader-U filter. Well, here an example for that...

Now this is "artsy" and still documents the wonderful and very prominent UV pattern this flower has, very well still useful as a documentary.

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