Sighting for May 4, 2017

Ash Creek - 5 miles west of Interstate 5 at the Klammath River
Siskiyou County, CA

Beautiful, sunny and warm at 70 degrees. This is the classic locale to find California Crescent. Most years I see a few but this is a banner year for them, I think the long and rainy winter and early spring has certainly helped. This is by far the best year I’ve experienced California Crescent, anywhere!
