I must be doing something wrong, I was trying to import my picture of me with a meerkat on my head from photobucket, but it is not working with the img command above, so I hope you can view it this way by clicking on the link.

it seems you have to put "only" one img (and not the url) ... but your pictures are to big, try to resize at about 600x400 :wink:
did they come from a SA park

Shane, just this morning I was reading a book one of my friends will publish later this year on all her many awesome trips through the various parks of SA.........and the one page I was reading she wrote..........
Quote:
And nothing puts you back into the moment quicker than a large cat suddenly making ʻscary eyesʼ at
you. Iʼm sure ʻscary eyesʼ has a technical term associated with it, but itʼs used to describe
when a cat suddenly focuses on you, with an intent to eat you.


Will remember the "scary eye technique" next time I stop at a AWC sighting........... :hmz:
