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.
