Klaus,

Perhaps this is the major new combination I've been awaiting for a set of images of one flower. Each one has it's own presence and believability. They work well together.

Quite often, the UV version seems outclassed by the one with visible light. Perhaps it's because the patterns fit in with our expectations or is it something else?

Asher, its really the lack of bright colors that makes the UV images look rather dull and often not very interesting, aside from scientists. And of course its seeing habits, as we are so "Pavlov trained" seeing things (i.e. flowers) a certain way.
