Flowers in Ultra-Violet
« on: June 13, 2018, 03:53:51 pm »
This website has wonderful pictures of flowers.  A variety of flowers, listed by species, are shown in natural light and in UV light.  It gives a good perspective of how a honey bee would view that flower.

Some have a typical bullseye pattern while others do not.
