Coordinator notes: Correct, a fresh Sheridan's Green Hairstreak sunning itself to warm up in the cool mountain air. These are one of the earliest-emerging species in the foothills and mountains of Colorado, and my personal 3rd favorite butterfly in the state (after the Indra Swallowtail and Silver-spotted Skipper).
