Someone who buys images is giving our images for free? This is not good! Can you find your images here?

I might be wrong but it looks to me like one person selling his own images there.

edited to say
Looks like you're right, that hamster belongs to Eric Isselée.
I just tried downloading one and all you get is a very small res. image like the ones they give away on IS and other sites as a comp.

Not at all. Click on "all sizes" and you can download the (1698 x 1131) version. Nice "comp". For a 50 inch monitor.

Thx for watching out for everybody over at Flickr Chode  :)

If I ever see anything fishy I'll do the same, though my Flickr time has been cut back to chatting with my contacts and participating in a few of my favorite private groups, not likely that I'll run across anything.
