What is your favorite desktop picture?

Mine is:

Attachment 8692

Perhaps not the best shot considered by the professionals.
However, looking at this picture, I still have to think back at the scene we were in when this photo was made in Tanzania last year.
We watched them hunt, kill and eat a Thomson gazelle, you can still see the blood around their faces and their bellies are full. It was awesome.

Here's my desktop. Obviously, it's not one of my shots.

Here's mine at the moment, it's just my latest photograph that I've been working on. I like to place them on the desktop cause then I look at them a lot and sometimes I get an idea for something I could do to improve on the shot (either in Photoshop or through a re-take)

Some very good images everyone! Funny how many use shots from other sources.

Mine constantly changes and depends on which shot I'm working on at the moment.

Currently the 4 we are using in our house are (do we have enough computers??):

And my wife has this one at work:
