Garden Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) [Vis UV IR]

Garden Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) [Vis UV IR]
Comparison of a Garden Strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) flower under visible light (top), ultraviolet light (middle), and infrared light (bottom).

In visible light the flower has white petals with a yellow centre.

In ultraviolet light the flower has quite dark petals with a very dark centre.

In infrared light the centre is brighter, appearing the same tone as the petals. The leaf of the plant also reflects infrared strongly, appearing brighter than it does in UV and visible light.
