Click on the thumbnail to view a hi res copy of the image, after which you can right-click and save the image to a local drive.  Many of these images are far larger than your monitor resolution, so we highly recommend IrfanView, a freeware viewer (with no adware, spyware, etc.) if you wish to save and download any pics here or elsewhere.  IrfanView is simply the best image viewer available. With it you can very easily fit larger images to a full-screen view.  Even if you have Photoshop CS, you'll still want IrfanView.
