Cropping
is a great way to remove fingers from otherwise good bug pictures :-)

 
I did crop this.
It would have otherwise looked like a rectangle of pavement with my finger & the moth in the middle. -_-;
the finger is actually for scale because I didn't have a 6-in. pocket ruler with me at the time.

This is what I meant. While everyone knows how big 1-1.5 in. is, few of us know how big your finger is. It is great to use something for scale, but the image is better without coins, car keys, or fingers after they are used to get a rough measurement.
