UV Decoy Paint? Hmmmm....


Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about this stuff since I saw that link.

I researched a bit further and found that ducks and most other birds do indeed see colors in the UV bands.


Let's go a bit further with that.


If they see in the UV wavelengths, then anything we wear or have with us that's treated for UV protection must reflet UV light and make it look likes it's in the spotlight to the birds.


So, here I am in my shadowgrass camo parka, hiding out in my camoed boat with my camoed pop-up blind, all treated to resist fading from UV... thinking I'm in stealth mode, when in reality the ducks are looking at me like I'm a Roman friggin candle :eek:
