Thanks for the help with an ID. The grape leaf makes sense because I have a lot of the caterpillar host plants in my yard.

That does look like the grape leaf. It may have just hatched thus giving it a more brilliant blue sheen.

This could also be the Grape-leaf Skeletonizer, Harrisina americana. http://bugguide.net/node/view/769645/bgi...

Scape moth? Could be a Ctenucha moth, but I don't think they're found in CO.
