My (short) experience in this field of Photography shows me that specially flowers with yellow colour are having in UV-light a distinct dark pattern or they become entirely dark. Maybe sombody knows if also red, white, blue ecc. flowers have this tendency to become dark coloured in UV light.

Here you see Chrysanthemum segetum= Corn marigold or Corndaisy (the Italians call this flower with the beautiful name "Ingrassabue"). The first picture is made with normal light and the second in UV (with the Baader filter).

Very impressive result Franz! It gets quite obvious,
how much more resolution you get, when using UV
as compared to using visible light!

Cheers,
