Interesting that the banner has the bee on the left, but the preview pane has the bee on the right. When you open the preview pic the bee goes back to the left. Hmm.

Great picture!

Excellent photo to use for your banner and excellent crop of it. Thumbs up

As per Leslie's musing about the flipping of the banner image, left to right, I've had a couple of my own submissions flipped in the same way, and just supposed it was artistic license on the part off whomever makes the banner decisions, who must have thought the flipped versions "played" better.

Great banner and a clever title (Buzzy Buffet). Smiling

If the image had not been flipped, the bee would have been off the screen on many devices. I plan for about 1/4 of the right side of my banners to be unessential parts of the image.
