Outstanding images...They really allow us to better appreciate the scene.

There's one thing I don't understand from an earlier comment, though. Why would it be so dangerous to closely approach the large piece of the shield? It would seem that they took much greater risks with Opportunity while inside Endurance crater. I would have thought they'd want to get close enough to at least take some MIs of the shield's surface.
