He looks a bit mad at you...must be the red in his eyes from the HDR:) Great shot!

Since you are obviously more technologically advanced than me...any pointers on monitors. I bought the latest sharpest new LED screen in a high resolution. Went a bit smaller at 21.5 vs 23 as it fit my desk better and was told yes the reason the photos at the store looked better on it was because it had the higher resolution in a smaller screen. That seemed to fit all my needs so carried it home and hooked it up...only to discover my older computer did not support that high of a resolution...and my older eyes got eyestrain trying to read text at the higher resolution. Now I am back at the same old resolution as prior with a higher priced unit and a smaller screen than maybe I should have gotten. Assuming I can take this one back any suggestions? If I get a larger lower resolution LCD screen would I be better off? I had an old flat screen square Dell monitor that came with my computer that did a fine job....but it died:(

Wow, the things you learn on Pano...who woulda thought, turtle sexing:)

I am ready to fire off the e-mail...I added what things I thought might be of help and will wait to see if you need more. I am off for a short walk & will check when I get back.

Cool. I don't think I've seen a box turtle before. He looks funny.

Interesting Liam as we see them all the time. In the mountains and here in the piedmont. Do you see these and call them something different?

Best wishes from North Carolina
