Sanvitalia procumbens: Simulated bee vison vs Baader-U vs Jupiter-U filter for reflected UV ultraviolet photography

I got recently reminded to use my proprietary Bee Vision Filter XBV2 (that simulates the UV-Blue-Green vision of a bee in just one shot) more often, so here it is used on Sanvitalia procumbens (Creeping Zinnia) flowers plus I added the Baader-U2 and Jupiter-U2 filtered pure UV shots for comparison:

So and here you have the full comparison as a tryptich VIS-UV-BV:

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