Creeping Zinnias have a very interesting pattern which only shows in ultraviolet. It is thought that these are nectar guides for insects.

Visual light shot


BV shot (simulated bee vision)


UV shot


UV+FL shot


Flourescence shot

Yes, here is a different version shot in sunlight, which shows that also. in simulated bee vision (which see mostly ultraviolet, here shown as blue, less blue and even lesser green)

Hi Klaus,

Very interesting images. Is this done in post processing or via filters on the camera??

Thanks Steve. No (or hardly any) postprocessing based on my "puristic" approach.
Images were just just resized and some WB adjustment done.
It is all done using the right combo of lens, filter(s), light, camera.

P.S.: whats's a "Macro Elamr" lens in your list, never heard Wink Wink
