Thanks for cropping... but I think you also reduced the size of your images in the process. What you want to do is take the full-size, high resolution image and cut away everything outside of the bug.

 
photo cropping
I think I fixed all the image issues. The original photos were on my home computer, so I couldn't get to them right away. Thanks for the helpful comments.

 
They look great.
Thanks for your efforts!

Please be sure to crop your pics...
...as 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 tiny bee in a lot of unnecessary background. :)

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

Thanks!
