Orange Tip Butterflies Mating

whilst pulling brambles out of a rhododendron bush on a volunteer session today, I was desperately trying hard not to step on the wild flowers growing in the grass and only just spotted these - the weather was crap, wind blowing and a little wet - this is the best of the bunch. Was tempted to pick the flower and bring them home to photograph but didn't want to harm the butterflies.
