Venice Kelly

CR 103- dirt road 4 miles north of nederland
Boulder County, CO

it was mostly sunny, about 58F and breezy. most of this road is southern exposure. spring beauties and candy tufts are blooming. i was surprised to see a Two-banded Checkered-Skipper this early. they usually begin to fly mid to late May. also the Olympia marble is a first time sighting at this location. we have been monitoring this location for 8 years.
lots of Painted Ladies right now.
