Maybe the argus thought it was sitting on an s-car and wondering "why doesn't this s-car go?"

Annette -- thank you for the kind words regarding the school shooting. The whole country (and beyond) is in shock.

Excellent dof and sharp throughout with a great bg Annette. My ownly concern here is the border. Have you tried the simple sect all then stroke a 1px white and a black bg. Pops them out then
