Sempervivum "hens and chicks" multispectral

Dr Klaus Schmitt

Well-known member
My Sempervivum ("hen and chicks") plants were flowering due to that excellent hot weather we currentlyhave here in southwest of Germany.

Took photos in reflected UV and simulated bee and butterfly vision using an UV-Nikkor 105mm and a modified studio flash.

Just amazing how good this lens is.... glad I don't just have one of it ;-)
