All excellent images, the fingers of light in one of the chameleon images is a nice touch.

Thanks for posting!

Very nice. I've also enjoyed your blog. So sorry you had such bad experiences in my adapted country, Ecuador. Sadly, one really does have to be very alert and cautious in the big cities here.

I am fascinated by your UV fluorescence photos here and on your website. They inspired me to search for a 365nm UV light on the web, but the units you recommend on your website appear to be discontinued. Do you have any current recommendation? Preferably of a unit that uses AA batteries (following your wise recommendation to standardize all equipment on this size battery)?

Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated!

Lou- Ecuador is still a favourite of mine and I've since learned to be more careful. Undoubtedly part of my ill fortunes have been in part to my naivete while traveling the area. Since then my first couple mishaps I've not had much trouble there.
If you're comfortable with Ebay then you can still find them there. It's one of the more expensive models, by I like the increased power of the 3W (shorter exposure time) and the IPX grade means it's pretty well sealed for the tropics and dropping it in the occasional puddle won't do any harm.

This one is the one I use. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TANK007-Tank-007-TK-566-TK566-3w-LED-365nm-UV-Ultraviolet-Flashlight-AA-Extender-/371422286149?hash=item567a7e5145:g:DCgAAMXQd~5RIRnF

Paul, thanks very much for that link. I will buy one right now. I am very curious about the possibility of fluorescence in orchids, especially those whose flowers imitate arthropods.

I am glad you didn't let your bad experiences spoil the country. It is hard to learn "street smarts", but one does learn with enough exposure to danger, and then one can usually foresee, spot, and avoid problems. Ecuador is a fascinating country and I can't think of many other places in the world with so many undiscovered plant species.

You should research what wavelength most orchids fluoresce at. I haven't noticed too much floral fluorescence at 365nm, so if you're using it for flowers the 395nm wavelength might be better suited to your purposes.

Nothing is known about the fluorescence of the species I work with. That's why it is so interesting to me.
