Florescent - is that true?

I know film photographers used to use filters in order to photograph bluebells, which are notoriously different in photographs to what the eye sees. I'd expect digital photographers to suffer similar probs, though not something I've followed. I thought it was a UV issue, but not as simple as just using UV filters to correct.

How 'they' know, I've no idea, but I've read that bumble bees see flowers as very different colours to humans. It stands to reason that film/digital/human/bumble bee eyes and brains will each have a different take on colour.
