Smashing Painted Ladies
They are migrating this time of year, headed south, and apparently this summer produced good breeding conditions.
"I must have killed millions of them," said the FedEx driver as she passed a package to the café owner in Westcliffe.
"We'll call her Butterfly Killer," said the owner facetiously, after the driver went out the door.
As usual, we go smashing along through beauty.
UPDATE: The migration was large enough to create radar echoes. That's kind of wonderful.
