Thanks for cropping. :)

See reference here.

Please crop your pic... close to "just the bug" as possible. Only you and the editors have the ability to see the full-size image. Everyone else is left looking at a little wasp in a lot of unnecessary background. :)

You can click on "edit" and simply upload a cropped version. It will replace the current pic.

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!

Edit performed as requested.
Will keep this in mind in the future.
Thanks for your very prompt response!
