I just clicked on the pic's properties and I would hazard a guess that it is the resizing setting. I find 640 x 480 for landscape to be about the right size for this forum (Tony's suggestion, incidentally).

Your 'old thing' still does an excellent job, btw. :D

They're really pretty (dragonflies and butterflies - not the spider :? )

I do wonder if carrying a vial of sugared water and putting a small drop on a flower would be effective 'bait' and keep them in place a while longer. :think:

A tripod would be handy at times like this. :)

At the range you're photographing the beastie, you would probably be better off using a higher shutter speed (or sport setting if you don't have the option) and a flash (even though it is light). :D
