Default Phalaenopsis stereo in ultraviolet and butterfly vision

This is about shooting stereo images (for crossed eye viewing) of a Phalaenopsis hybride
orchid flower in visible, ultraviolet and simulated butterfly vision using a special stereo
setup I'm currently investigating.

VIS (normal human vision image 400-700nm using UV/IR cut filter):


UV (ultraviolet image 300-400nm using Baader-U filter):


BV (simulated butterfly vision image 300-700nm using my XBV2 filter):


Phalaenopsis hybrides hardly show any prominent UV pattern unfortunately.

This is all fascinating.

It is wonderful that your technique gives us a chance to grasp how the differences in vision in these insects give them a wholly different "outlook" on their surroundings (not so meanigful in the case of P. hybrides, evidently).

Thanks so much.

Best regards,

Doug

Thanks Doug, appreciate your kind words! Hard to find flowers having UV patterns
in deep winter here. Hybrids usually don't show that.
