Dette er hva som gjør UV fotografering så utrolig spennende! For hvordan ser blomsten ut i UV i forhold til hva vi mennesker ser? Vi ser bekkeblommen som helt gul, mens insekter ser en større variasjon, og denne er virkelig flott i UV!

Selv om denne blosmten er kritthvit i det synlige lys for oss mennesker, er den ganske så mørk i UV, og spesielt i sentrum, der den er gul i synlig lys.
Dette er vårens store overraskelse hva anngår forskjeller i UV og synlig lys! Lyset vi mennesker oppfatter gjør denne blomsten altoverveiende ensfaget gul. Men i UV er den fargefordelt som man oftest ser i Asterales – mørkt i sentrum og lyse kronblad. Denne tette engen av vårkål må være som et fyrverkeri av invitasjoner for […]
Så krittende hvit som hvitveisen er i det lyset mennesket kan se, er den stikk motsatt i UV lys av en eller annen grunn. Muligens er dette som fyrlykter for de vårbestøvende insektartene!
No special patterns appear in UV for this flower!
Very dull in UV compared to the many color variations in visible light. Endemic.
The yellow center of the flower is dark in UV, and the white petals are also quite dark. In UV this small flower appears prominent against the greyness of the background seen here. Endemic.
Not particularly colorful in visible light and even less so in UV – all dark as it is.
Dark center opposed to the all-yellow appearance in visible light – a typical Asteraceae! Endemic.
Hypericums are beautiful in UV light, as they are not uniformly colored, and this species is no exception. This species forms impenetrable thickets dotted with flowers, that seem pruned by an expert, but neither goat nor human have anything to to with this amazing growth! Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂 […]
Yet another Convolvulaceae with identical color in UV light! I have yet to encounter one, no matter ho many different colors in visible light, that is not the same in UV!
The tiny flowers are dark in UV light compared to the mellow cream in visible light. Endemic.
No surprise in color distribution in UV light compared to visible light for this species – brighter center compared to the darker outer. Endemic.
The flowers of this giant of hypericums are dark in center in UV, compared to the all-yellow in visible light. Endemic.
What’s interesting with this landscape view of the bottle tree, is that the flowers appear same color in UV as the lichen on the rocks! Endemic.
Appears much duller in UV compared to visible light. Endemic.
Very interesting in UV, as the flowers have more variations in color than in visible light in which it appears uniformly orange.. Endemic.
White in visible light but quite dark in UV, and stands out in an otherwise dull/grey background in UV.
Visiting Socotra is like going back to another time and even to another planet entirely. When visiting the only dragonblood tree forest on the island, you are surrounded by trees so unlike anything alive on Earth today, that you simply cannot wonder if you’ve gone back to prehistoric times. To emphasize the weirdness of the […]
No surprise for this Asteraceae – dark in the center opposed to all yellow in visible light.
Yet another species with very dark flowers in UV.
This one was a surprise in UV all dark as it is, except for two tiny openings in the center.
Very prominent against dark leaves and the rocks in UV. Endemic.
Almost same color in visible as in UV (although UV light is only an approximate and subjective projection, it is after all invisible to humans!), but the brighter center in visible is dark in UV, making it blander in UV.
Mostly white in visible light but dark in UV.
Brighter in UV than in visible light, but the center is less prominent and the yellow stamens are very dark.
Quite dark in UV and very prominent on the otherwise bright plant and rocks.
Bright in visible but quite dark in UV. Endemic.
Nothing unusual in UV for this species. Please help me with positive id – leave a comment 🙂
No surprises in UV, except that all the parts of the flower appear uniformly dark and that the brightest areas to us are the darkest of all. Endemic.
No surprises in UV light.
A mesmerizing flower in shape, texture and color which is almost completely dark in UV. Endemic.
This flower is incredibly beautiful and one of two icons of Socotra, but in UV it has no surprises – ladd rather dark, and without any patterns not seen in visible light. Endemic.
No surprising patterns in UV for this one!
As with most Asteraceaes also this one has a dark center in UV.
Very interesting in UV light, as in visible it is all brightly colored!
Although this flower has no pattern, or other UV specific advertising, I think it looks equally amazing in UV as in visible! It’s one of the most beautiful of Socotra’s flowers.
I have yet to encounter one species of Convolvulaceae that is not like this in UV! Either multicolored, or one color in visible, but all the same in UV.
Also this plant holds no secrets in the flowers in visible light that is revealed in UV light.
Flowers are very dark in UV. Endemic.
As the petals were gone (I found none in bloom), this photo is more on the developing fruit than a true flower.
This flower is more interesting in UV, as the veins and the center has a darker more pronounced color compared to the more or less all-yellow in visible light.
What a surprise! In UV this bright flower is completely dark!
Bright yellow in visible light and very dark in UV! Endemic.
Another example of a yellow flower in visible light that is very dark in UV. Endemic.
A typical sight in UV for asteraceaes – same color in UV as in visible light, but very UV dark in the center. Endemic.
While bright yellow in visible light this flower is completely dark and non-reflective in UV light.Endemic.
Much more uniform in color in UV than in visible light – the white bands are missing completely. Endemic.
No surprising patterns or colors in UV.
Also this species is dark in UV with no pattern or markings that should suggest advertising to certain pollinating insects in UV.
No unusual patterns in UV light.
Perhaps equally beautiful in UV as in visible light?
Perhaps even more beautiful in UV as the dark center is contrasting the bright petals, opposed to all yellow we humans see?
Surprisingly this flower is very uniform in reflection in UV compared to the nuances in visible light.
How dramatically different it looks in UV! In visible light (for us humans) it looks all yellow! Please help me identify it – leave a comment 🙂
Darker in UV compared to visible light.
Darker in UV compared to visible light.
No surprise patterns or reflection/absorbtion in UV compared to visible light.
What a big surprise that this bright flower in visible light is completely dark in UV! Not even a lighter and a darker region.
In UV the all-yellow we humans see, is not at all present. The size and shape of the dark centre can in many instances be a key component in identifying species that are very similar morphologically.
