Orange Tip

I,ve been trying to get a decent photo of Orange Tip Butterflies for a while now,and although I see them often enough, I,ve never been able to pin them down (not literally),but last week I found one in our field resting on a grass stem a then a cuckoo flower. Whilst trying to photograph it ,the heavens opened  and I found myself  lying flat out with my coat over my camera and me getting pelted with hailstones,(you have to suffer for your art), but I thought perhaps the flowers may be left with some water drops when it stopped, and that was the case with some nice shots resulting .Taken with a Sigma 150mm Macro lens,handheld.
