Coordinator notes: You wrote me about these Mary Ann...can't remember if you were going back to see if you could get one to rear on through? Maybe you did and didn't find any? These would certainly go on through to adults...too large to diapause to spring. I'm doing OK; trip to the north rim of the Grand Canyon was good overall...count in the park was poor, partly because it clouded up early. Anything new down your way? Hope you are well. Mike
