Ultraviolet image (not stereo)



Simulated Butterfly Vision (UV mapped in as blue):


not much of an UV pattern to see though....

I wonder whether perhaps they fly by smell integrated 3D with the UV image?

I'm sure the scent of a flower (if it has one, that one does not, at least to me) plays also a big role, otherwise flowers would not have scent. They have so wonderfully developed methods to manipulate their pollinators.
