Crop
I almost frassed it. I recommend strongly that you crop it otherwise it is not noticeable as a thumbnail. And remember that only you and he editors can see the full size image, everybody else misses the details.

Update 4/24/2010:I cropped it for you; it is still rather small but better than before.
Only now I realize the humor in the word "thumbnail".

Cropping
Hi Bill! Thanks for submitting this shot of a drone. A very nice addition to the guide. Would you be willing to crop this image more closely so that viewers can see the bee more clearly? Once you have done so, simply click "edit" under your original image and then re-browse to select the new file name and click "submit". Thanks so much!
