What I want to do

I wanted to see what Infragram did for insect photography. My assumption, which proved true, was that by making plants appear white, insects would pop out and be easier to identify. The NearIR-G-B also worked great. These plants would otherwise be dark green and purple, and very low contrast. Here is the same bumblebee in NearIR-G-B Bees in NearIR-G-B

Who Knew? A wasp pollenating! Bees in NearIR-G-B
