Instructions
Perhaps you didn't read the instructions fully.
"For consistency, please do not include any borders or other decorations around your image."
Consistency may not be absolutely necessary, but it is nice. You probably can crop these images and resubmit, or at least, refrain from putting frames in the future.

 
?
You waited three months to tell me you didn't like the frames?
And to answer you question, no I didn't see the comment about borders and frames. And no I won't crop and resubmit. If they have to be removed by an adminstrator they can contact me.

Thanks for you comments....

 
It isn't that she doesn't like the frames...
On the image submission form the instructions state...
"For consistency, please do not include any borders or other decorations around your image. A copyright notice in the image is reasonable, but note that your copyright will automatically appear below the image. Please do not include any other text or markup in the image. We reserve the right to crop the image to emphasize the bug."

In the Terms of Use it also states...
"I, or anyone I designate, have the right but not the obligation to monitor and edit or remove any content at anytime without notice."

...and Beatriz didn't wait three months to tell you. There are no moderators that view the pictures before they are posted in ID Request section. People happen upon images years after they are submitted. Right now there are 202885 images on BugGuide. Beatriz just happened to run across your image 3 months later and rather nicely asked you to comply with the Terms of Use and other instructions.

The images can be a maximum of 560 pixels on the longest side. Having a border that takes up 50 or 100 pixels seriously reduces the important part of the image, the bug itself. Having a larger image of the bug greatly increases the chances of get it identified. So does not snapping at the people you are asking to help you when they try to help you...

But that is just my .02ยข
