Great find!

FYI, the photo used here isn't shown on Flickr as being in the public domain. Its available for reuse under what is called "Creative Commons" which means you can post the photo here on BridgeHunter, but you have to follow the rules that the Creative Commons license says. In the case of this photo located here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunsurfr/3068607384/ it is "CC BY-NC-SA 2.0" (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/ ). For the purposes of BridgeHunter, it means you need to attribute it. Flickr is rather unclear what proper attribution is, so I usually list the "real name" or if no real name is given, I list the user name, then I list the license type and then post a link to the page the photo is on. So for the photo on this page, I would list the Caption as "sunsurfr, CC BY-NC-SA 2.0, http://www.flickr.com/photos/sunsurfr/3068607384/"

Hope this helps! I just don't want anyone on BridgeHunter to get in trouble.
