Coordinator notes: Your ID is correct and this is a very good sighting and record since this butterfly does not get this far north on the eastern slope in Colorado very often making it a sighting that will be hard to duplicate next year...but I hope you'll keep your eye out for it, perhaps for a stray in June or another like this the same time next year? Very nice photos too...I'll verify the rest of your submissions in the next day or two. Mike
