Alain you have posted web links not picture files and when I change them to url format o do not have permission to display the actual image.
I suspect you need to download the files from your Google cloud storage into whatever device your are using and then upload those files to the forum.

Hope this helps.

It always makes me feel so much better when other people get things wrong too, and I do mean that in the nicest of ways... :)

But I do have full confidence in you, Alan, to get it sorted.... :)

My wildlife pictures are hosted externally on flickr, that's may be why my images are still there(though if I delete one, it will disappear from here probably).

Sold to my son in July for a fiver as a Welsummer with a few Silkie genes. He's a bit smaller than average, but true Welsummer plumage.
Here he is again with a couple of young Blackrocks

Stunning pictures, made even better by seeing them outside enjoying themselves on grass and on water.....
They may be well looked after for profit, when kept inside but, wouldn't it make for a horrible picture, and I don't agree that they have everything when shut in huge sheds....

We gave our neighbour some eggs with blue shells, I convinced her that when she cracked them open the yolks
would be blue

The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet
