Please crop your images to a rectangle that is essentially
'just the bug'. While you, as the contributor, can click on your image and see the full size 2000 pixel image you posted, the rest of us are restricted to this 560 pixel reduction which is about 15% moth and 85% not moth. Notice you can't enlarge anyone else's images even though many are posted at larger than 560 pixels.
Please don't repost. Just click on edit and browse to the new cropped image. It will simply replace this uncropped one.
