Butterfly Tears

This female orange top butterfly sat on the same cowslip floret for about 48 hours. The fine rain was in the grass and raindrops landed on her eyes.The lens effect of water on her compound eyes magnified the patterns.It made me think of tears.


She responded to the sunshine today and after a quick breakfast on nectar from a bluebell and bittercress, she flew away towards the sun.
