In these three exposures, you should be able to see left to right in each shot:

bulletA green felt fabric that was on the test bench throughout
bulletRealtree Camo sample
bulletA piece of highly fluorescent hunter orange camo.
bulletA small collection of strips of the hunter orange camo. These were used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the UV-Killer
bulletA cotton swab that had dried UV-Killer on one tip.

Description of test:  From left to right: 

  1. Control shot made with flash
  2. Same setup, except lit by Black Light-- notice how the camo fluoresces somewhat.
  3. After reviewing the shot in-camera I determined that the flourescence was not clearly showing up. I pulled the fixture down and held it directly over the fabric.

Conclusion:  Out of a huge pile of samples, I found two fabrics that had fluorescense . This was the first.  It is a RealTree pattern.  The initial test under the incandescent bulb had shown nothing. However, under the new bulb, a pale pink glow came from the white highlights of the pattern.  Now whether this shows up as pink to the deer (which cannot see red)  is a whole  other issue.  Either way, this was a positive test under the new bulb. It was just rather subtle.
