Klaus,

Thanks for sharing.

The winner, to my eyes, is with UV light. That color unifies the plant and makes it so strong. The differences seen in visible light, while so informative, have us concentrate on details and not the physical presence of the plant itself!

Interesting phenomenon!

Asher

This time of the year is rather difficult and no flowers with UV patterns available really, but I needed to test this ultra rare lens out, so my African Violet had to do ;-)
