Monarch in the dew covered grass

This Monarch Butterfly is clinging to a dew covered blade of grass. I was drawn to a movement on the ground and was surprised to see this butterfly resting, maybe sipping on the dew. Some of the dew drops are orange in color...maybe reflecting the monarch's wings or the morning sun.
