  2. Superb Keith, your earlier post didn't.........one suspect blogger is not quite up to speed yet. I use Live writer to compose can take a while to upload but it seems stable. I've yet to see a Dragonfly this year.

  3. Cheers Roy. A bit of an experimental post really, but I think I've sussed it now :)

    Thanks Adrian. Earlier I couldn't find the HTML code over on flickr, (got it now), and used the 'blogger' button instead. It only did one picture at a time though, as separate posts.
    Proper post later; doctors soon.
