This is great for those of us in the land of 4 Ambystomas, but photos 3 and 4 have disappeared.

I'm not sure what happened, Jeff.

It seems okay now.
Please try again.

Okay, change number 42, I just tried to look with iexplorer and the same two pics wouldn't show. They're fine with chrome.
I'll research it further.

Okay, Got it. :thumb:
Let me know if anyone has trouble viewing.....
