The following images were obtained with the Sony A900 camera, the Baader U2 filter, the Steinheil Cassar-S at f/16, and various exposure times. Display intent is BGR.
"Main Keep with Blossoms:"
"Ni-no-Maru Back Path:"
"North Park Path:"
"Ni-no-Maru South Area:"
"Osaka Business Park:"
The blossoms are the palest of pink to the eye, but are vividly tinted in the UV. Wind and lack of a capable close-up lens conspired to prevent the acquisition of any quality close-up images of them. The best I was able to achieve was this highly cropped photo taken at the minimum focusing distance. There is considerable wind blurring. Fivefold symmetry is evident, and there seems to be some sort of nectar guide toward the center of the blossoms.
