Nice contribution but: Monroe county where? Without the name of the state that info is meaningless. Please, fill in the state info in your other submissions too.

Moved from ID Request.

great thanks a lot

I cropped your nice photo for you

Please crop your images closer to the bug, only you and the editors can see your full-size images so the large border reduces the detail most people can see.

Also, please click "edit" and finish filling in the location on this image.

Hey what about size? Long Key State Park, great place!

You're right
Christopher could probably figure it out measuring the screen. His images continue to be submitted with incomplete data
