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.
