UV Honeybee on Flower

© Bjørn Rørslett/NN 1997

A honey bee is homing in on a colt's foot (Tussilago farfara L.) flower.  The bee is guided through the prominent UV colour patterns of the flower head.  There is no room for a mistake here, given the clear advertising signs put up by the colt's foot!

Technical data: Nikon F4, UV-Nikkor 105 mm f/4.5, Nikon equivalent to Wratten 18 A filter over the lens, SB-140 UV flash with rear-curtain sync
