Please crop your images to a rectangle that is essentially
'just the bug'. While you, as contributor, can click on your image and see the full size 2500 pixel image you posted, the rest of us are restricted to this 560 pixel reduction which is 10% caterpillar and 90% leaves and unnecessary background. Not very helpful for ID purposes. Notice that you cannot click on and enlarge anyone else's images even though many of them are posted at larger than 560 pixels.
We'll crop this one for you so you see the difference at the 560 pixel level.
