I was wondering how I can \”see\” polarized light. And if mica Toolbox could work to analyze and quantify that.

I am interested in this because the flowers of the system I am working on (spiral gingers, orchid bees, and hermit hummingbirds) seem not to interact directly with pollinators by color. I think the color is secondary since bee-pollinated flowers can be red or have complex patterns (red flowers are typically known to attract hummingbirds in temperate systems). Hummingbird-pollinated flowers can be yellow (typically thought to attract bees in temperate systems). So I think I can figure out something by modeling polarized light.
