Daisies with pollinator - Infrared Photography

in macrophotography •  22 days ago  (edited)

With the flower open for business a fly shows up to get its nectar fix and to help pollinate the flower. It hung around for a few minutes and I had a chance to get a good picture of the little bug.

These photos are my posts for #macrophotography

When it left I took another picture of the flower without the pollinator.

This flower was still opening, its petals going in different directions.

Two Daises, one that is open and the other is just starting to open.

A close up of the petals, they can be dried out and ground up to make a potent insecticide pyrethrum dust.

I take pictures with a special camera. Its a Mirrorless DSLR that has been modified by Life Pixel to see light in other wavelengths. This allows my camera to see light in the Infrared [IR] around 1300 NM wavelength, through the visual spectrum and into the Ultraviolet A and B wavelengths roughly into the 300 NM wavelength.

I carry many filters on me to make the photos you see in my blog, these filters screw on my lens and help me isolate certain wavelengths for certain scenes. These filters can be IR / UV pass-through filters to assist me get a natural photo taking out the UV and IR light. Or I may use a Infrared pass-through filter capture just IR light. I can do the same with UV light as well, though I need some better filters which they can cost a few hundred dollars for true Ultraviolet pass through filters. So for right now I have B + W 403 bandpass filters that still allow some IR light in, due to their cheaper material.

There are also exotic glasses made of sapphire and germanium I am open to working with to replace my silica glass hot mirror with a material that allows even longer wavelengths of infrared to enter my cameras sensor. Special sensors, lenses and filters of that material would be needed as well, so it would be a big project but one that may give some even more unique photography results.
