Comment:
It never ceases to amaze me how much more detail/texture can be seen in some fruit or vegetable subjects when photographed as UV fluorescence. Here a small Butternut Squash (Cucurbita moschata).

Technical details:
Nikon D850 with 105mm micro Nikkor lens.
"Light painted" with Convoy S2+ UV torch.
20 seconds @ f/16, 200 ISO.

Really interesting. The light-cyan main body looks like a translucent gel.

This is cool. I tried a Butternut once, but didn't get that nice red area :sad:
