Amazing image of moon shepherding Saturn's F-ring

Going through the Cassini Raw Images I noticed this great close-up shot of a moon shepherding the F-ring. It very clearly shows the moon perturbing the ring and there appears to be a thin stream of material between the moon and the rings. I'm guessing that its probably Prometheus, but I haven't seen this image described or reported anywhere. The shot was taken on October 29, 2004.

The URL for the full sized image and description is http://saturn1.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/raw/raw-images-details.cfm?feiImageID=26447
