This Myosotis flower has a quite specific UV pattern, its petals are bright in UV around 385nm, but its center is quite darker. Also very interesting to notice is, that this Myosotis signals the development state of its individual flowers by different UV "colors" (meaning the reflectance peak changes from long wave UV to shorter wave UV) and all this gets nicely visible, also in simulated bee vision.
