I'm actually lucky enough to work with gigas now so I see quite a few, but even so, the fresh DOR was not a fun sighting. It actually reminded me of the DOR delta morph king from our trip a few years back as it was an unexpected but really fresh early morning roadkill on the way up to the sierras for Z's

Bummer, but at least you know where to go to see them.
