[UV] Iris flower: Baader-U vs Jupiter-U filter for reflected UV ultraviolet photography

Again more about that new Jupiter-U filter of mine. Also those shots were taken today at the wonderfully blossoming Hermannshof, Weinheim, Germany. This time it is about a yellow Iris pseudacorus.

All triptychs are presented VIS left, Baader-U middle, Jupiter-U right:

A quite surprising find, since Iris' are usually not much UV reflective. This one however does quite strongly around 365nm.

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