Absolutely wonderful.

What a beautiful bug, such a striking pattern!

It looks to me like some variety of Stinkbug, but they are a very large group. Try posting to "ID Request" at ( You will need to register and they will want the date and an approximate lat and long.

I have had similar trouble in the past and this week I had to upload an image twice, is this an object lesson in hiring the lowest bidder?

Actually I have found the staff quite helpful solving difficulties, when they occur.

If you mean the JPEG cpompression level of the image itself, always set the quality as high as possible. Meaning 99% if your camera allows, certainly not lower than 85% (the default for many cameras). SD cards are cheap enough. I use a card only once, keeping them as backup.

For uploading to this site, I make a copy and resize (scale) the image to 1600 pixels on the long side. Rename the scaled version as such to keep the two versions clearly distinct. (file.jpeg file-scaled.jpeg)
