Auburn/Placerville
El Dorado County, CA

Dennis Holmes, Ray Bruun, and I, did our annual trip to the sierran foothills to photograph Sonoran Blue. There were eggs, egg casings, and six first instar larvae at the Auburn site, but no flying adults. So we went to the Chili Bar locale on the American River near Placerville and saw ten adult Sonoran Blues!
