butterfly vision

  1. Dr Klaus Schmitt

    Bidens VIS-UV live

    Rudbeckia hirta multispectral 3D stereo (crosseye)

    Ddmittedly a bit tricky to see in stereo, as one has to concentrate on one of teh four images only, or there will be a center overlap of the to two top and bottom stereo images...

    Some of my recent works on human and (simulated) insect vision, here how a flower ("black eyed susan", Rudbeckia hirta more specifically) may look like seen through a butterflies' eyes (only the sensitivity aspect: UV mapped in as blue). The stereo images are LRL images and allow crosseyed...
