i agree with your reason to crop but sometimes it pulls the pixels and causes distortion if you crop to much .Ive noticed that alot on my own pics

Thanks Harjit!

BTW, someone IDed this wierd insect:

"Helopeltis spp. (Hemiptera:Miridae). The main id feature of this bug is off course the antenna like projection on the back. There are 2 species, for simplicity, one is black and the other is orange as in your pic.

In agricultural circles, this is a well known pest in particular Cocoa plantations. They cause damage by sucking the sap from the cocoa fruits or young shoots afterwhich the spot where they suck becomes wrinkled and subsequently infected by fungus. In severe cases, some trees can even become stunted."
