I need to re-find all the images so I can get full-size versions, and to make sure we have rights to use them all.
I'm having a lot of trouble with this one:
I don't know where it came from. I suspect it might not have been used with permission. Notably, it's amazing users are using it at all, as it's an easter-egg easter egg (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_egg_(media) ). You can only get it if you choose the menu option between two options. Nevertheless, a few hundred users are using it.
1. If anyone can find the original image, I'd love to find out where it comes from, and if we can use it.
2. If not, let's pick a good easter-egg image from Flickr's Creative Commons pool.
I've found a few, ie.,
Pull the other one.
Yeah. Especially if you're using it, 'cause it's going away otherwise...
So, out of curiosity, was it just that you grabbed a random image on the web to put into LT for the easter egg and forgot where you got it? Your description was a little vague. ;)
Until you find a better one you can use it.
Here are a couple of pretty floral eggs:

(There's a whole slew more - I just did an advanced search on flickr for "easter egg", in CC licenses allowing commercial use: http://www.flickr.com/search/?l=comm&ss=1&mt=all&adv=1&w=all&...)
Anyway, this seemed generic enough, while also attractive:
I have never been too successful with the computer idea of Easter eggs. Never found 'em, despite directions.
Re profile images: Would it be possible to have captions or a way to ID an image (floating cursor popup)? I have no clue who some of the authors are, which could be an interesting clue to the Thingamabrarian's personality. Clicking on the image usually just gives the originally-sized image on LT. I can be pretty clueless--at first I thought LT had an abnormal number of squirrel and tapir fans...
My viewpoint is that squirrels are rats with fat furry tails.
Squirrels may be 'cute' & rats can be 'cute' but I see them both as vermin.
You're welcome to use any of my Easter egg pics:
This one is pretty and purple:
