Reflected UV Experiments at the Santa Barbara Orchid Estate

We'd seen a lot online regarding Reflected UV photography of flowers.  Supposed;y it recreates what some pollinators see.  I had the opportunity to visit the Santa Barbara Orchid Estate, owned by a friend of mine.  Well, OK I was visiting her, and took the opportunity to try reflected UV photography with the Orchids.  So here goes, the Phalaenopsis variety showed the best result:

I need to work a bit on the exposure.  Only about half of the images turned out well, many over exposed in UV.  Interesting..........We'll look at some more results as the week rolls on.
