HUBEN garden center: human vision vs simulated bee vison; reflected UV ultraviolet photography

One of the most famous garden centers + nurseries since decades is HUBEN (founded 1905) located at Ladenburg close to Heidelberg/Germany. Today I took some multispectral shots there (with their permission of course), in normal human vision VIS, in UV using the Baader-U filter, as well as in simulated bee vision using my XBV2 and new XBV6 filters respectively.

Images are shown in quadriptych form (VIS, BV2, BV6, UV in the sequence left to right, top to bottom) - best to click on them to see them larger:

So, I hope you enjoyed a multispectral walk through this beautiful garden center! It wasn't my first time there, but certainly not me last time ...

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