Bryce - thanks! I'm not sure if there's a specific name for that pattern.

Don't buy a DSLR because you want to take pics of shrimp... buy one because you want to learn how to take GREAT looking pictures of everything else.

I mean your PBL are pretty white, just saying havent seen many that have the white like say some of the CRS that our out there.
Thanks! Seeing several lines of PBL compared to PRL, the white does look different and is much more noticeable up close and personal. The white on the PBL is more of a yellowish white compared to PRLs crisp snow white. I don't know why it's like this.
