There were these Dahlias of different colours growing in the adjacent flower beds to the Rudbeckias I shot the other day. I could not resist shooting these flowers to see what their UV and IDS patterns looked like.
As you can see, the UV pattern is not very interesting at all. But the IDS gives us a better picture of what it would look like to the pollinators. And there were many bees flying around pollinating while I was taking these pictures.
Equipment used: Olympus EM-5, Coastal Optics 60mm F4, Baader U filter, Baader UV-IR cut filter, IDS1 & 2 filters
