An accidental & unexpected discovery during early trials was that these petals are dark in UV on their upper surface but quite light on the underside. This discovery encouraged us to try to capture both sides of all subjects.

More reflectance on the underside of the petal than the top, but not as pronounced as the Oxeye daisy.

The snail was a capricious accident we decided not to remove and re-do. The RGB and UV images show that it moved between the images.
