Digital IR @ Mission Santa Barbara. I saw these four blooming Century Plants and though they would make a nice IR Study. Now that they have bloomed, they will die.

We won’t be here to see it.

You can fine a lot online regarding Reflected UV and flowers. So on a visit to a Friend (who conveniently owns an orchid nursery) I took the time do do a few Experiments:

And the ‘natural’ light images for comparison. See all the results HERE.
