Thanks for cropping.

Be sure to crop your pics... close to "just the bug" as possible. Only you and the editors have the ability to "zoom in" and 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 image.
