Yellow primrose

I have a few different varieties of primrose growing in my front garden. These bloom without fail every late winter/early spring. As they have a very UV-dark appearance, I have not really taken them seriously as an imaging candidate. But I thought I should image them in the various light spectra indoors.

As the primrose is very UV-dark, I have had to use full power from my Quantum X2D to even get this level of reflection in the UV image.
