It is incredible that a lens can gather that much detail from a wide angle shot. So why haven't we found Bin Laden

Well, I see goose bumps and stretch marks. Also, I can tell that it's cold out there on the dock.

I assume it is many, many shots "stitched" together with software.

When I zoomed in the very first time, I magically zoomed directly to the image that T-Al posted. Surprised myself, must be some kind of "ESP"? Hint, it is close to center of the pic though, so maybe not so strange.

Yup, I read the "about" page and it explains that they do it that way.

No, that's the redheaded cougar next door. Look for the raven haired lady.
