This is the Common Purslane - Portulaca oleracea which is pretty but also tastes very well on salads!
Shows a very strong UV reflection around 360nm!

What a delightful set. That 4th one is the prettiest!

But you chose the false color, didn’t you?

How come you assigned that hue?

It happens to be lovely!

Well Asher,
the mapping of the UV, B, G, R channels is my choice, but a scientific one. Hece how I have designed my propriatary filters to achieve those colors directly in my jog-files (and visible on the camera LCD monitor, so I see at the time of recording if the image is OK or not - not possible wih RAW files).
