What happens in your brain after you have such pictures. Are you able to use thrm to unravel plant or insect physiology or behavioral links to such distinct patterns?

Well, as I can see stereo images very easily and spontaneously, as I have done that for decades, such a presentation allows to see the differences in vision between us humans and UV seeing insects.
It also makes you think why such has happened during the co-evolution and plants - insect interaction over millions of years and if such flowers with UV patterns my have gained some sort of evolutionary gain from that, standing out of the crowd of other competing flowers...

But I also just like to enjoy the esthetics of those images...

Yes they are, indeed, really beautiful to see in 3D. We have to stop, create a new intent and then gradually experience the wonder you have learned to appreciate immediately!
