This flower shows a very specific and unique UV pattern, its petals are UV reflective around 385nm up to the middle (which
I haven't seen anywhere before) and additionally reflect at 365nm at its tips. The rest and its center is UV dark forming an
UV bullseye pattern.

Very beautiful shots Klaus, Great detail and dreamy soft background.
I like the XBV best.

Thanks. For me, the UV image gives the best, so far unseen colors - unfortunately hard to map the tips into the bee vision image.

Yes, more color nuances happening in the UV shot. But I do like the green and turquoise in the background of the XBV shot.

So interesting! In the other post, I liked the XBV the best...but here the UV appeals to me more than the others.

Nice work!
