Butterflies at Rocky Mountain Arsenal

| 2 images

A couple of butterflies I found during a short trip to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge. Once an old military outpost for weapons storage and decommission, it is now being turned into a wildlife refuge. It would be the largest such area within the Denver metro area, although at the moment most of it is closed off. It is already home to a number of deer, bison, and recently a nesting place for bald eagles. Not much to see there right now, although I am curious to see how it develops and changes over the coming years.
