Description/Notes: 
They are flying up in Salem, Oregon, as well (50 miles south of Portland). Around 1-3 per minute. Very faded and very skittish - I’m having a hard time finding one that’s not flying in order to get a still photo. So I may have to shoot video and extract a still from the video. The Salem ladies are flying due North whereas those in the Sacramento, California region have been flying NW. Observed by Paul Cherubini, DesertLeps Newsgroup, posted May 12, 2019.
