Mexican Zinnia - Zinnia haageana in reflected infrared photography IX

Today more different shots of those very decorative flowers, various types of Zinnia haageana - Mexican Zinnia but in reflected infrared photography using just a ND filter and a UV/IR Cut filter for the visible light shots. Lens was my CERCO 94mm quartz flourite lens. Light source was sunlight. All shots were done at about f8.

All diptych images show left results using UV/Cut filter for the visible shots and right a ND filter for the (mostly) reflected NIR shots.

Mexican Zinnia flowers have a very specific visible pattern that also somewhat washed out gets visible in the mostly NIR shots, and all this gets nicely visible in this side-a-side presentation.

I have written previously about these flowers in UV HERE.

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