    it's so fuzzy!
    got an i.r. filter or is a u.v. filter? (is there such a thing?)
    they say that some bugs can see i.r.
    wonder how different orchids look.

    I think you/we/I would be pleasantly surprised at the patterns that are in our flowers that the pollinators can see.
    I saw a nature show that had a special camera/lens and it was amazing the patterns that are in our garden variety flowers. The patterns are like the night landing lights at an airport guiding the bugs to the pollen.
