This is Mark Plessner. I apologies for the large file I had no idea that it
could even possibly be an inconvenience or inappropriate or just a bad
thing. I stumbled across this newsgroup, and thought butterfly people would
enjoy seeing butterflies as well as writing about butterflies. If I ever
think I have anything worth contributing in the future, I will most
certainly get permission first, before making any post, I am sorry if I
offended anyone in any way.
