Klaus,

While the visible light image is so pleasing to our eyes, the experimental XBV filter, (whatever that may be????), provides a very pleasant artistic alternative to be considered. So what's the story on this experimental filter?

Well, previously I had to sandwich two images to achieve what bees can see: UV, blue and green. Then I had an idea how that could be done ion just one shot using a suitable filter, so that is my XBV experimental ("X") Bee Vison ("BV") filter.
