Zinnia: human vision vs simulated bee vison

This now is about a Zinnia hybride flower that I discovered on teh market today. Took some shots, in normal human vision, in UV using the Baader-U and Jupiter-U filter as well as in simulated bee vision using my XBV2 and XBV3 filters respectively.

Interesting to note that this one hardly has any UV reflection.

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