Slide show would be great on all of the galleries.
Would it cost to much to do it?
Even with high speed I sometime don't get through the gallery because it is such a pain to click and weight for 50 pics.

Additional Info

You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to bull elk defending their territory and cows from intruding suitors. Every September and October, it’s possible to walk a ridgeline and see (or hear) this amazing clash of titans play out. These photos from Donald M. Jones record this behavior.
