Having shot the honey bee in visible light, it is natural to want to know how the bee looks in UV. I had to change my camera to my full-spectrum Olympus E-PL5 in order to shoot this.
I used the Olympus E-PL5, Leica Focotar-2 50mm F4.5 mounted on my macro bellows. For the UV light source, I used my Cokin Creative ring flash 1/2 power to light the bee, and the Baader U 2013 filter was the UV-pass filter (which has even better IR-blocking capabilities than the earlier versions). Settings: ISO 200 F5.6 1/80 secs. These were then stacked in Helicon Focus. For the Extreme macro of the bee in visible light, click here.
As you can see, there is not much visible UV pattern discernible on the bee which is not very UV-reflective.
